I love you so I will marry you.

And I will bear you a child from time-to-time.

And in the bad times

I will bury the brooding hens worry and the angst inside of me

And when the bills are past-due, and theres more month than we have money for
I will find the words and the way to comfort you in this time.

I do love you

So Ill go camping with you without much protest
(even though I hate camping)

And Ill clean and cook the fish you catch
(even though I hate cleaning fish)

And Ill make it a point to smile lots and often, to make this family time quality time.

Day-to-day, Ill do the simple, loving things that youd never think to do for you, never mind me

Things like:

the laundry

the cooking

the cleaning


the holding

the kissing
and the missing you when your mind is gone on vacation and Im left to manage all alone; a lonely despot, with two court jesters and no one to share my throne.

I remind you to cut the grass

I love you

So Ill take your name and make it my own
And Ill take your pain and make it my own when it comes

Well sip sorrow together when we have to, and well laugh together a lot, and well dance together from time-to-time.

Thank You :-)
Thank you both for reading it, and then commenting too. I'm glad you both like it so much - but I'd be pleased with any comment, good or bad, as long as it was sincere. I like to think of this forum (with the submissions and the comments/critques) as a good for me to grow as a writer, and hopefully as a person too.

Thanks Again!!!
