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.
