You And Me - Poem by Khairul Ahsan

You and me,
Passed thirty years and three,
Through Spring and Winter, rain and shine,
Enjoyed our life, barely with a hint of a whine.

You and me,
Like birds on a tree,
Built our nest, with endless zest,
Hardly caring about taking some rest.

You and me,
Went on a spree,
To adorn our sweet little hut,
Not much knowing, what was what!

You and me,
Started a family,
Before realizing what could be,
The meaning of life, entwined, not free!

You and me,
While sipping tea,
Made our plans, like a bumblebee,
To gather pollen for 'our youngs to be'.

You and me,
In the days windy,
Have weathered many storms,
Wearing unpleasant crowns of thorns.

You and me,
Both heartily agree,
That we have lived our eventful life,
Singing a chorus, without much strife.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Dedicated to my wife who bore with me thru' life's twists and turns,
For so many years, without a fuss, taking care of all my concerns.
Couldn't thank her enough for what she has done, from the day one,
It's just a small gesture, to appreciate the long run, with lots of fun!

    i love the Poet's Notes! so poetic! ! and informative! !

    now to read the poem. [if i add all the years i've been married [to four wives, one at a time], it about totals 30 years! ! !

    i like barely here: barely with a hint of a whine. .............honesty is (sometimes) important!

    and hardly and much and not and much [again! ] in (some) succeeding stanzas.

    Wearing unpleasant crowns of far i've not worn any crown of thorns which was
    ....................................................................................pleasant! ! !

    Oh so sweet! Congratulation for the years that you'd share with yr wife.
    May the years ahead filled with much joy and happiness. Not many couples had chance to survived the test.

    If only everyone could take a moment to look at their lives and realize that they did not get there by themselves. We tend to show disregard to those who made our lives worthwhile without stopping for a moment to just say thank you. The dedication is a wonderful gesture of respect, love and appreciation. Beautifully written. (Report) Reply

    All that a life partner should be! Simply expressed and easily understood but the most difficult to find. Love and appreciation for her just being there through it all. Beautiful! Thank you for sharing. (Report) Reply
