April Poetry – Ever After

The gift

 This is the ever after.
Rain falling.  Pets making noise.
Tomorrow’s schedule
beckoning
And will I get enough sleep.
Bills need paying and
laundry is waiting.
Oh, and what about that
thing on the house
That needs fixed.
Kids need this and that and
later on
You always want them to call
And you wish for some of
those days back.
Ever after.
It changes every day.
You live in it, ever after.
And you love through it.
Always, somehow, you love.
Happily?
I hope so.
That is what we all wish
For the soon to be bride and
groom.
Go into life and be together
And love and be happy.
Even when it rains, and the
messes
Need cleaned up,
The night is too short for a
full day’s work,
And you still have to do
that laundry,
Take care of stuff
Whether there are kids or
not.
And look at the photos from
that
Special day when you said “I
do” and
Remember.

And you love through it.
Always, somehow, you love.
— Deborah L. Tisch, April 2014

For the month of April I am joining other writers at Camp NaNoWriMo (www.campnanowrimo.org). My goal is to write a poem every day and share it here.  
I appreciate all the kind comments and words of encouragement you have sent!
