You Are In, Or You Are Out--Third Age Poetry

Enjoy it with this...notebook melody...!

Source

.



You are in or you are out...!

That's all love is... about

being happily married for 45 springs,

maybe I can share my story with you my friend...


That's what grandma used to say with pride

She survived my dad for another 25 years or more.

numbers don't really matter anymore

sixty three, for this wanna be writer's soul.


Wife is in the Kitchen right now

fixing our spaghetti with tomato sauce

sure... I did my chores, before typing down here

Sorry for being worried about her


They always ask us on family reunions and encounters

what's the secret of our 'charming' romancing...?

sometimes we answer at the same time, laughing all along

Good food, good chat, a little of imagination, and adding some 'fun'


Like little kids we play the game of life

she looks for me and I look for 'my sweet wife'

taking care of each one... so good, so great!

understanding that our lives must keep hatred at bay


Nothing better than going places together

remembering that sunset that took forever...!

biking my dad's double bike around that shore

getting ourselves soaked, as we sink our feet on wet sand


ten year and ten more, 3 kids were enough!!!

now we have the time of a lifetime, for the two of us

Going back to where we met and kissed

You got it!, Behind that damn Pine tree!


Most of all, we just care for the other one

and waiting in return the love that we've just won

Not hard to advice to new generations

who foolishly get themselves in deep tribulations


Wait, excuse me dear friend, she is calling me now

Fine! Is my turn to close this piece of advice...!

...was about to talk about sex behind our doors

but she cannot wait for me... to try those meatballs


before I leave this is my last advice

clean those toilets seats for your wife

find some roses before making it back home

get her the teddy bear that she always adored...

because you were the man that all along she chose... from her heart.

Kelly dear, is a fictional story, with so much of true in it. But yeah, sometimes we forget simple things that can make a marriage last. Thanks for your stopping by.

This is so sweet. I love the images of the love the man has for his wife. I especially like the advice at the end about putting the seat down... I hate it when I fall in in the middle of the night. That is a biggy. You won my heart! :-)

Votes and shared!!

Lord this is sweet! It reminded me of that song on the new Muppet movie when I saw the picture of the tandem bike. It says something like I pedal and you steer. Very sweet!

Hi Susan..on a personal side, I had to learn the hard way, to put the darn seat down. Took me 12 months though. The socks were easier, she would get rid of them if they wer not by her laundry basket. Thanks for your stopping by.

You are right on the Mile The king2020!

The risk is bigger than any penny stock and the loss can be substantial if one of the traders in the marriage give up on the commitment.
