Happy anniversary to us! How we've managed 22 years when we are such opposites is a testament to give-and-take. A short poem, with a nod to Paul Simon's inspiration.

20 Ways to Keep Your Wife Your Lover

Tell her she's the bomb, Tom.

It's not all about sex, Rex.

Plan a beach trip, Rip.

Let her sleep in, Flynn.

Give her more hugs, Lug.

Praise her good heart, Bart.

Strum in the swing, Bing.

She's not one of the boys, Troy.

Make-up some pet names, James.

Snuggle in the rain, Payne.

Listen to her songs, Phuong.

Watch a silly chick flick, Rick.

Leave your troubles at work, Merc.

Don't shout commands, Rand.

Open the door, Moore.

Bring home a rose, Mose.

Tell her a story, Corey.

Share fully your lives, Clive.

Trip the light fantastic, my dear Patrick.



Happy anniversary to us! Hoping for at least 22 more.
