I write poems for various reasons, this poem came about this morning after I read a Facebook comment. The person offered congratulations for my wedding anniversary, I immediately knew I wanted to write this poem.
The commenter is a fellow Month of Poetry 2012 poet, and I'm thrilled to have been prompted to write this. This is a happy, happy, joy, bliss poem, and there should be more of them in the world!
Thanks for 26 good years, here’s to the next 26!
Twenty six years of wedded bliss,
fights may be there, but sealed with a kiss -
arguments not lasting more than a day,
it’s worked for us, it’s our marriage way.
Others might do ‘married’ differently,
but last night we toasted our anniversary.
Our bond is working, far as I can see -
life’s mostly sweet, for Graham and me!
