43 Years

I'm soooo lucky.
Denise and I have been happily
married for 43.
It doesn't seem that long to me.
And yes, it really has been 43
Amazing years together.
The secret is quite simple
And obvious as a dimple
On a happy, smiley face.
We play.
And play
And play.
Yes, there is work to be done.
That we won't deny.
We get confused.
Our feelings get bruised.
We are very human.
She is part of me.
Whatever I do to her
I do to me
Because she
Is a part of the self
That makes us we.
We are not the same.
We differ in points of view.
We complete the me and you
Into a workable we.
I love that she said yes to me.
43 years ago.
43 now. Maybe 43 to go.
