Poem about long lasting marriage
Wait for Me: And Other Poems About the Irritations and Consolations of a Long Marriage by Judith ViorstThe legendary author of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day turns her attention to marriage in a collection of poems that explores the peeves and pleasures of a long marriage...and what lies beyond.
Judith Viorst began publishing poetry in the 1960s in New York magazine, and since then, her works have celebrated life’s milestones with wit and poignancy. Married for fifty-five years, she now casts a rueful, experienced eye on the amusing annoyances and deep satisfactions of a long marriage...and what a couple must inevitably confront together.

A wonderful gift for a parent, a grandparent, or your own eternal someone, Wait for Me is a celebration of the lasting power of married love.

The degree of love and affection that you share will intensify immeasurably. You will find that there is potential in your relationship for the bonding of two souls within the security of marriage.
