What is a Marriage?

It’s loving & cherishing, loyally relishing

It’s hosting & toasting & Sunday roasting

It’s having & holding, the odd little scolding

It’s guessing, confessing & nightly undressing.

It’s mending, depending, & can be heart-rending

It’s trying, relying, a little white lying

It’s snoring, adoring, occasionally boring

It’s knowing & showing, & mutually growing.

It’s compliment giving & always forgiving

It’s planning & booking & help with unhooking

It’s sharing & caring & dressing gown wearing

It’s walking, it’s talking & bottle uncorking.

It’s enduring, alluring & most reassuring

It’s tender supporting & raucous cavorting

It’s secret confiding & shoulder providing

It’s loving, respecting & calmly accepting.

It’s readily praising & often amazing

It’s cleaning, it’s mopping, it’s waltzing & bopping

It’s playing & paying, it’s coping & staying

It’s lives interweaving & always believing

That’s what makes a marriage.
