Nayiri: Hindsight

On that fateful Spring night
the music was so loud
that I could not quite hear
your whispers in my ear.

I nodded with my head
Feigning to be polite;
Little did I know that
I had signed up for life!

Fifty years together
were not an easy ride;
we have had our fair share
of taking life in stride.

I think it’s only fair
That I should now confide;
‘wish I’d heard you better
On that fateful Spring night!

March 1992
