Five And Alive

“It’s nice knowing you,” he said, as always, simple and heartfelt.

And her smile spread slow and wide.

Turning down the lights, they climbed under the covers, sporting blobs of Vicks and night cream (respectively); the Boy and his Missus shook on it and kissed, and congratulated themselves on 5 years of good old-fashioned lovin’.

    That man is a treasure
    Matches your measure
    The goodness of you both
    An example sets forth
    And may the next five be without pressure!

    Pallavi: Gah! That awful Vicks, I tell ya. 😡

    Aunty G: A treasure he may be
    A precious find for me
    But I be hardly as good
    As I really should
    He’s fine enough for three!

    Her smile spread slow and wide as she thought, ‘Just what I want him to think. He ‘knows’ me? Ha!
