We signed up for a lifelong of happiness

But agreed to sorrows too

We solemnly uttered in sickness

And rather joyously in health

In retrospective, till death do us part

Doesn’t sound half as bad as, let’s say,

Donating one’s kidney.

But probably most daunting of it all is commiting

To a lifetime of enduring each other in all our worst

Early in the morning 

And very late at night 

And in all those nutsy, obsessive afternoons.
