Today is Alex and my wedding anniversary. Can we give him a round of applause, please? Dealing with me on a daily basis is a whole roller-coaster of crazy. And not a fun one where you scream, throw your hands in the air, and make a plan with your friends to give a big thumbs-up and a cheesy grin to the camera as you zoom by on the rails. Keep your arms and legs inside the cart at all times, folks, or you might lose one.
Even though I’m a bit crazy, our marriage is quite the opposite. We have an easy, respectful and loving relationship, and I couldn’t possibly be more grateful. I thought it would be fun to share a poem I wrote for Alex this year. Now, let me forewarn you: an 8-year-old has better poetry skills than I do. (I probably haven’t written one since then, anyway) This poem was meant to be a silly joke, and that’s all.
“Oh Alex, I really love you
And the way that you love me
Your butt, your smile, your sense of humor,
Jesus, you make me so crazy.
You’re sexy when you’re cleaning
Take charge of that litter box!
Hurry up, now. I can’t stand it
Strip down into your socks!
Thank you for accepting me,
Farts, hairiness, and all
Even when I shed like crazy,
And leave it on the shower wall
I’ll love you ’til you’re old and wrinkly,
I’m honored to be your wife
You’re stuck with me forever, babe
I’m yo bitch fo’ life”
I know, I know. I won’t quit my day job.

Thats hilariously awesome!! Happy anniversary btw.😊
Thank you 🙂
Very welcome =)
Happy anniversary! I love the poem it is so funny and tender. You are so lucky to have found your husband so young and not to have to go through the nightmares of dating and breakups. I dream of having a relationship like yours and I’m hoping 2016 is going to be the year I find it. By the way about your previous post a search term someone has found my blog with today is “sister on cocaine fucks brother and husband.” I think that really says it all…http://bit.ly/1ER5cLY
Thank you! 🙂 I’m very lucky. I hope you find a relationship like mine. And… that search term is crazy! haha
Congratulations to the both of you.
Awwww! Sorta sweet…Happy anniversary!
Happy anniversary!!! Here’s to an awesome 2016!
This is beautiful. Congratulations!
Thank you 🙂
Best poem ever! lol

Humor keep the marriage stronger! Great poem, Happy Anniversary 🙂
Humor definitely helps our marriage! Thanks 🙂
Congratulations and may there be many more wonderful years together!
I hope so! Thank you 🙂
That’s a great poem! Love it! My favorite part was how sexy your husband is cleaning the litter box 🙂 I can totally relate to crazy – my poor husband is a poor F-er and should get an award for putting up with my pyscho Sxxt too!!
Haha. We found some winners
Bloody brilliant. Made me smile and laugh. A great partnership; long may it continue. Love to both. x
Thank you 🙂
Wow! He cleans the litter box??? Hmmm. Guess my hubby didn’t get THAT memo. 🙂 Happy Anniversary!
He does! He does all the cleaning in the kitchen, too. Not sure how I got so lucky 🙂 and, thanks!
AND THE KITCHEN??? 🙂
Congratulations! I like that you kept the poem simple and added humor. Makes up for the shortcomings which is something I can attest to for sure. I leave my hair all over the house too but whatever my husband does more than makes up for it!
Thanks! I thought of you when I was originally writing it, and wished I had your skills haha. Your humor poems always crack me up.
I’m flattered! I thought it was great!
Happy anniversary. I could think of a whole lotta other things you could be doing right about now. . . . Has nothing to do with poetry, either, unless you want to take a stab at the type of the poems I sometimes write. (grin)
You’re right haha. Hey, you ARE the master of dirty poetry. I will admit
I love to bait with my mastery, and there’s the rub. Have to be cautious of friction.
Happy anniversary! and many more happy years
Thank you 🙂
Happy Anniversary (:
Such sentiment in the last verse…. 😉
Ha Ha Ha Happy Anniversary!!!!
It’s touching, isn’t it? 🙂 haha
Happy Anniversary to both of you! Love your poetry!

How touching! 😉 Congrats to you both! 🙂
Happy Anniversary to you both. May you have many more crazy years together.Your poem was great.

I’d buy that Hallmark card.

Congrats! Perhaps your crazy keeps him well-entertained, much like your charming limerick 🙂

Awwww, it’s beautiful! Happy Anniversary!!
Happy Anniversary ! and many more happy years and poems.

T.S. Eliot? Is that you?
Your poem was fun and probably better — certainly no worse — than mine. The more important thing is to congratulate you on your anniversary. It’s great that you have such a close relationship with your husband. 🙂
How’d you know? Lol. Thank you 🙂
Thought so. 😉
Happy Anniversary. Wish you both, a wonderful 2016. 🙂
Thank you very much 🙂
Awesome! Puts Poe to shame. Happy Anniversary (day late). May you have many, many more–with many more poems….
Congratulations. Happy Anniversary. Thank you, love, nia

“I’m your bitch for life” is one of the most romantic phrases I’ve ever heard!!! May I use it? 😚
Aw, yes the romance! Congratulations (on the anniversary, maybe not so much the poetry, but hey, it made me laugh!). And Happy New Year, btw 😉
