Chalk n Cheese

What do I say ? Where do I begin?

As into today’s Daily Post I log in….


I love the late, late night, he’s into early morning

I love an evening at home, he loves his partying!

I love visiting the past, all the sugar and the spice

He loves remembering only the part that’s nice!


I love shopping and malls – My idea of weekend fun,

Alas – To him, its akin holding to his head, a gun!

I love guides, books n Knick knacks at a popular spot

A waste, says he –  will you ever open all that you got?


My cupboard overflowing, yet I have “no clothes to wear”

By his comfy old shirts and suits, he will always swear! 

Save for a rainy day, says me, invest and look to the future,

Live for the present, says he, the future’s not ours to nurture!


I make and break and remake – “Flexible” decisions are my hallmark

While, once taken, they’re “His” to stand by, right or wrong, light or dark!

Together we have traveled more than half my life,

The wind beneath my wings, to whom, I am a wife!


Mars N Venus, Chalk and cheese – we may well be

But for the life and family we have thankful I’ll ever be!
