I'm really glad that we got wed
because he brings me tea in bed
and has a handsome silver head
which thankfully remains unshed.

    I remember one afternoon I was the only male staff member sitting at our lunchtable with half a dozen female teachers. One of them said something mildly mocking her husband, then another one said something a little harsher. So the oldest one, twice divorced as she told everyone, just dumped on men, to the supportive laughter of the whole table. Yes, I laughed too, I'm no hero! Things quieted down a bit. Then one of the younger teacher perked up, But my husband always takes out the garbage on time for the pick-up! That set another cascade of laughter and all of them agreed, they would stay married to those guys as long as they took out the garbage - on time. (Report) Reply

    Grey is nice, so some would say
    but pink is better every day.
    heads are so easy to keep neat
    (and grass doesn't grow on a busy street,) (Report) Reply

    Still blessed with a head of hair. Very few can keep this natural head covering.
    It lasted just like the love long shared by two. Made me smile.. (Report) Reply

    I make the coffee in the morn
    and nightly make the tea
    and she smiles for two were born
    made by her for me. (Report) Reply

    This made me smile... The cat got the cream (so to speak) When you mention the silver head I still saw a silver tray carrying the tea. Probably due to the layout.
    I've watched my poor man lose his hair since we met 17 years ago when he was mid 20s but I never notice, to distracted by his smile :) (Report) Reply

    I'm glad we never had that ride,
    My hair is going with the tide,
    But my Darling remains with me
    and in bed still bring each other tea.

    Nice poem. Inspired me. (Report) Reply

Borne up by each wave as it passes, drawn down by each wave that recedes;
