Three decades and still together,
is there a secret to our success?
One's selfishness, the other's tolerance,
always a balance to redress.
Some times were never that easy
an expectation so self-evident,
the attraction of opposites then proving
unlike factors can complement.
So over the years all these factors
became less defined at the edge,
the middle ground grew thus providing
the space to help strengthen our pledge.
Promises made still have purpose
facing up to the passage of time,
now to be forever based on a friendship
cementing a love that's ours, your's and mine.
