The Scare

We were having a fight,
And you just walked away,
I didn’t know what to think,
Or whom to blame.

That night, I cried myself to bed,
Cause you still hadn't come back,
And my heart was breaking up,
Uncertain of our future together.

Morning came and you were still astray,
I tried ringing your cell,
And checked with your friends,
But all I got was a negative reply.

My panic, my frustration,
My life, my aggravation,
My love, my tribulation,
My helplessness, my disorientation.
A ring at the bell, I pray it’s you,
I wonder what I will say,
For all the times, you drove me mad,
This one too is added to the archive.

But I need to know,
That you love me still,
You look angry no more,
But you stay mum.

I wonder what’s going through your mind,
You look at me and ask,
"I am starving, is there something to eat?"
I wanna shout, but I smile instead.

I reckon, now’s not the time.
We sure have our fights,
But last night’s scare,
Proved to me, how much I love you.

I guessed, you realized it too.
That’s the reason we each,
For the time being, forgive our misgivings,
And I guess, that’s what marriage is all about.

To love and to hold,
In sickness and in health,
To compromise and to forgive,
As long as we shall live.

~A Poem By Fizz

  9. Marriage is a mixed blessings - it can be irksome and it can be a blessing too. The idea is to find the happy medium.

    Let is evolve and enjoy the ride.

    You have employed a conversational style that reminded me of the lyrics from a Dire Straits song.
