“CARRYING ON OUR FAMILY TRADITIONS!” a poem a.k.a.: “Love Is About Companionship!”* for: 28 August 2019 (Wed.)

“It’s too-good to-be true!” and “This will-never work!”

“The World will-NEVER let us!” and “I am a jerk!”

“Romance can-not last!” and “We-are ALL-doomed!”

“Surely, in-no-time-at-all, we’ll-all be-entombed!”

WHAT CHANCE REALLY IS THERE, FOR HAPPINESS HERE?

Shouldn’t we just kill ourselves – and save-us a[nother] tear?

As I sat, sitting in hopelessness, it occurred to me today,

Something to make us jump and shout and feel OK:

Something like: PAST GLORY and GOOD FUTURES too!

O. M. G.! It’s-our parents’ lives! Examples so true!

For, our parents had romance – caring – and holding-on long,

And LOVE, lots of sharing – and singing their song,

Of: “I-simply adore -you and I’ll-never leave,

And I-love-being with-you, as life’s-tapestry we-weave!”

If people say: “Love’s imperfect!” We’ll snuggle and kiss,

And then they’ll say: “Those two are crazy!” but we’ll never miss,

On one thread of excitement, no matter how subtle,

Just like our parents, jumping-around in a puddle!

SINGING IN THE RAIN and holding hands for-ever,

Never noticing what others – call “in-cle-ment weather!”

So, whether things are X or Y or Z,

We’re-happy-modeling-our-loving-parents!

Now, it’s YOU and ME!
