By Paul E. Schindler, Jr.
Art can come from the overheard.
“It’s cute the way you keep trying to turn me into the man you deserve.”
A line, delivered in jest,
By a husband to his wife after 40 years.
As husband to wife,
After 40 years.
I, too, find it cute
the way you keep trying to turn me into the man you deserve.
I like to think the effort is:
not too troublesome,
worth your while.
I love the process.
Ich bin auf lange Sicht dabei.
To turn you into the woman I deserve
Would be to downgrade you.
You have always been more than I deserve,
Since the day we met.
I know; karma, so I do deserve you.
