A Very Important Date


A Very Important Date

Well the date is finally set

Are you terrified yet?

It only took us ten yearsFeatured Image -- 200

To get here

We have been down together for so long

I forgot your name

I think it’s “Hon.”

We are complicated

But this has been pretty easy

As I put up with you

And amazingly, you put up with me

So let’s have commitment issues together

We will be

Family

And make this forever

In reality

We always knew it was going to be

I really just want a pretty dress

So thanks for humoring me

We are not the type who need paper or proof

To know that we are where we should be

This is a celebration

Not a contract binding legally

Let’s tie the knot

Let’s jump the broom

I’ll be the bride

If you’ll be the groom

Or we could switch if you want to

Whatever

As long as I get to be with you

I will save the romance for the vows

As well as the public display of affection

But I will say thank you now

For going with me in this direction

I am so happy

To give this the old college try

I know you will see this through

If I am by your side

Patience and Perseverance


Patience and Perseverance

brothers (2)

Two entirely different coins

But on the same side

Our arguments are legend

We thought our grudges would never die

You made statements

I asked why?

You said I will wait you out

I said wanna bet?

You say patience is a virtue

I say you know who is patient?

Death.

You tried to lead by example

And of course I rebelled

But there is no doubt

That you taught me well

Because I never knew what perseverance was

Until I refused to give up on you

And I like to think my insanity

Taught you your patience too

So now you carefully explain

Right and wrong to your child for an hour

And I am in the background

Yelling fight the power!

We may spend a lot of time

Shaking our heads at each other’s nature

You forever the director

I forever the player

But when we manage to make a team

We can’t be beat

And in all honesty

Your qualities have rubbed off on me

Slightly

Maybe someday I will be patient enough

To understand how you put up with me

But until then I will persevere

At running head long into being hasty
