Sorry I Snore

I used to be fragrant, my body a playground, a fountain of more. Now I am older - slack-throated, gape-jawed. I’m sorry I snore. I used to be vibrant and you were invited to shine at my core. Now I am older, I judder and roar. I’m sorry I snore.

Ha, ha! This is a topic in my home, one which the 'snored-at' have learned to take in stride, shrug off and develop a tolerance for, amazingly enough... I love the humorous way you're penned this one, Nina. Thanks, Gershon

Thank you Gershon. Some nights it’s one of us, some nights the other - all’s fair in love and snore!

My hubby snores so loudly that in the beginning I wondered how I'd ever get to sleep, but now I can't sleep without it - also love your rambling, adventurous rhymes!

Yes, it’s due to a floppy throat as we age apparently. Sexy, eh?! Thank Jan!
