Forty Six Years Ago

All I can use are cliches
Like breakfast dishes
Coloured in Chinese Willow
Beauty debased by familiarity
All the words were used
Long before we met
By others, to whom a muse
granted a ready tongue, yet
For the first time I love you
A new love and no new phrases
All I can use are cliches.

Thank you, Buff, for forty-six wonderfully interesting years.

For three wonderful children and our eight grandchildren

And cricket

And for you being you!

    • Thank you, Francine. Although luck didn’t have a lot to do with it. It was laziness. When things went bad we were too lazy to leave (whichever one was annoyed) and when things were good, we didn’t think of it.

      I recommend laziness as a marital extender
