Poetry of Marriage

“I'll Be There For You”

I'll be there, my darling, through thick and through thin
When your mind's in a mess and your head's in a spin
When your plane's been delayed, and you've missed the last train.
When life is just threatening to drive you insane
When your thrilling whodunit has lost its last page
When somebody tells you, you're looking your age
When your coffee's too cool, and your wine is too warm
When the forecast said, “Fine,” but you're out in a storm
When your quick break hotel, turns into a slum
And your holiday photos show only your thumb
When you park for five minutes in a resident's bay

And return to discover you've been towed away
When the jeans that you bought in hope or in haste
Just stick on your hips and don't reach round your waist
When the food you most like brings you out in red rashes
When as soon as you boot up the bloody thing crashes
So my darling, my sweetheart, my dear...
When you break a rule, when you act the fool
When you've got the flu, when you're in a stew
When you're last in the queue, don't feel blue
'cause I'm telling you, I'll be there.
-Louise Cuddon

Sometimes marriage really is that ridiculous.  And I love being married to someone who accentuates the silly. I'm so serious and pessimistic naturally and I'm thankful to have met Coach, someone who just lets life roll off his shoulders and knows what's worth getting worked up over  Sometimes I'm just thankful he loves me. It really is that simple. 3 years ago he asked me to marry him.  I'm thankful every day for that too.

"All the stars in the sky and all the shells on the shore ... if you counted them up, I'd still love you more."
