I Love My Other Half

Updated on November 26, 2014

To Do The Things I Can't

Each day there is so much to see and enjoy

One person can find it impossible to make it all happen

That alone is enough to drive us crazy

Then there is that old saying ringing in my head

Where there is a will there is a way

I got to thinking what about splitting each of us in two

Then we could do so much more

It looks a bit messy

So I decided to take an easier route

What if we had someone like our double

That thought like us

Enjoyed the things we love


If we only knew someone that was so close

By our side most of the time

Help us when we are down

Even more creative and energetic

Know why didn't I think of it before

The love of our life

That person can and does more than my imagination can handle

I see the endless things that we have to get done

I remember an elderly gentleman referring to his wife as his better half

It took me years to finally appreciate the words he said that day

He knew only to well

He couldn't be where he was without his wonderful wife

To guide him out of trouble he didn't have sense to see

Push him when he was tired

Comfort him when he was down and out or just blue

Encourage him to do more sometimes so much more

Now I have to say

Thank you honey for making my life easier

I also know life goes both ways

I will continue doing for you

So you can also feel

How truly wonderful it is

So we become not two but four

Always going up and beyond

This goes without saying

Only one word comes to mind that can describe it all

      Michael-Milec Every day I thank my mom and dad for meeting and creating me. I love them both. Each were different and had their great qualities and flaws. I am still learning what they knew and I didn't have the ability to understand. Years later laughing and appreciating their wisdom. Thank you for reading and sharing another special comment.

      Such a nice testimony, Michael.

      Correct : a man wouldn't be what he is without his wife. This is truth of my experience. Admitting is only proof that " those two become one" is when we share and give to the "other" half our best we like and in return we have the same.
