Truth be Told

Truth be told
There's more right
in their wrongs
than you or I 
could conceive
They've stood by each other
when everyone else
would've fled. 
Truth be told,
they have a fight
in their love
that would leave 
others battered
and bruised
They're hysterically funny
arguing over good news
She started off asking
why he had to find
the leaky pipe 
"today of all days"
His reply: he wanted to.
She fusses again
and he goes in on
her maiden name.
Daily driving each other
to the limits of the Be Attitudes
Truth be told,
Most women wouldn't
fix his plate after he had
sabotaged her grits
but she does..
He argued about
painting the bathroom
a darker color,
she shut him up with
"I thought a woman's
house was her home
but I guess not"
He fussed under his breath
but bought the color she wanted.
She touches him fondly
He provides for her faithfully
Truth be told,
You don't see this
commitment often,
however, keep looking
there's plenty of people
that'll drive you crazy, but
only one insane enough
to stick with you
Truth be told.

Dedicated to my grandparents

Papa and Bami.
