Anniversary Poem - Poem by Donal Mahoney

She’s forgotten how great I am,
although I do my best to remind her
after all these years of marriage.

She knew how great I was on
our wedding day and honeymoon
and for some months thereafter.

But just the other day we were
stationed in our recliners
and I was trying to help her see

life as it is and not as she
has always wished it to be.
And the woman yawned.

She’s different now but it’s better
than being married to a groupie.
Tomorrow I’ll try reason again.

    Great! After you succeed in reasoning with your wife, come try reasoning with mine! (Report) Reply

    This one brought a chuckle from me. I can really relate. Sometimes my wife forgets how great I am, too. (Report) Reply
