Opposites Attract

My partner Andy and I have known each other for fourteen years now and remain happily unmarried. We are like chalk and cheese in many ways and yet our differences are what makes us so complimentary as life partners. Today‘s poem is all about our relationship and how grateful I am for Andy’s support.

Keeper

You stayed when all the chips were down

Leaned in and loved me deeper

When things got tough you stayed around

That’s why you are a keeper

You’ve stayed though we have our own ways

and you don’t always get me

Supporting me throughout my days

Each time I grow, you let me

You’ve stayed through lightness and in shade

In loyalty, in freedom

And such a peaceful home you’ve made

Your earthy tones, I need them

I am the fire, you’re the ground

We are each other’s teachers

When things got tough you stayed around

That’s why you are a keeper
