AN INTIMATE PRICE
Six month’s of frustration,
Brought out by early certification…
Holding a grudge
That wouldn’t budge,
Then opened to the wife’s consternation.
We had no receipts to declare,
Of the lateness we were unaware…
No time to collect,
Organize and select
This year it’s all up in the air.
Over The Counter expenses spent
Could be totalled and reducing the rent…
Being caught flat
With no proof of that,
Was part of my seething “resent”.
Anger brought into the open,
My wife was fervently hoping…
That I could forgive
Her part in the tiff,
Also blaming myself and moping.
Praise to God, I could,
For give her and me to the good…
Sitting so long
On feelings that strong
Is a practice that nobody should!
And now we’re reconciled,
‘Tis easy for me to be beguiled…
Not remembering that she
Can’t see as well as me,
To live with her with understanding* takes style.
* 1st Peter 3:7
