Good advice, especially for beginners. Since it was my ex wife's birthday yesterday, I'll offer this:

We thought we'd last forever, didn't we?
We bragged about our love to all our friends-
the fairy tale that never, ever ends.
But then, below our radar, by degree,

we stopped sitting together on the couch.
One went to bed, the other stayed up late.
Our passion turned to boredom, then to hate,
and, at the last, nothing was left but...ouch!

But time has passed, and in the aftermath
we've learned to let things go, and let things be.
I can't change you, you surely can't change me;
but we can share a sandwich, hold the wrath.

My memories of you are good and bad,
but you're the only wife I ever had.
