The Best Laid Plans

Perfect plans just don’t exist
No matter how you try.
It’s possible to nail the gist
But other parts won’t fly.

For circumstances do contrive
To ruin the precision
With which you kept your hopes alive
The way you did envision.

“The best laid plans of mice and men”
Is such a brilliant quote;
When Robert Burns put down his pen,
He knew a gem he wrote.

Such simple words and so succinct,
They perfectly suffice
To mark their message, long-time inked,
For us and also mice.

Ignoring the Sign

She wore a sign around her neck
That read, “No Soliciting”
She said she didn’t want to get involved
But I was not listening

Relationships add complexity
And she wanted to simplify
But the moment that she smiled back at me
I knew that rule I would not comply

I didn’t mean to interfere
With a course so well defined
But the best laid plans of mice and men
So often get undermined

I knew that she could not ignore
The sparks that between us both did fly
And since our first meeting that took place yesterday
Twenty beautiful years have passed us by

When your spouse is your best friend
Bumpy roads are smooth as ice
I’m so glad those twenty years ago
Shyness was not my vice
