Marriage Is…

Who Says Marriage Isn’t Romantic?

Your face lax,
You snore quietly.
Your arm reaches out
To slightly whack me upside the head.

Warm and cozy
Wrapped up in the comforter
With a cat across your legs.
So handsome.

My alarm rings
And I roll over to
See if it woke you up.
It did not.

As I come out of the shower
And turn on my lamp
You make a disgruntled sound
Turning away from the light.

Your grunt is so cute
Your turn so sweet.
I could just hug you
But you’d be woken up and morning-cranky.

I feed the cat
And brush my teeth.
I go to leave,
But kiss you first.

Good morning, sunshine!
I love you! Have a great day!
You mumble and kiss me back.
And then fart.

Marriage is…
Kisses
Farts
Laughs
Comfort
Sometimes arguing
Being silly
Bills
Cuddles
Cats
Computers
Netflix and chill
Friends
Annoying each other on purpose
and
Happiness.
