To my married friends…

Dear friend,

I know when we get together

there is no holding back

we can talk forever.

 

Everything under the sun

until at long last we are done.

 

After,

we should feel a little lighter

but we just exchanged loads

and packed them a little tighter.

 

And I remember what you say

it never goes away.

 

So if

all you do is complain about your life

and you seldom offer praise

I will only know your strife.

 

My advice will be to move on

it’s time for you to be gone.

 

The thing is,

the picture of your life I view

comes from your brushstrokes

your words paint of you.

 

You really can’t be mad

if I think your fella is all bad.

 

You’re smart,

so I trust there is a good reason

you’re staying together

and why you picked this one.

 

But if you want me to think he’s good too,

you best be sharing less fault and more virtue.
