This is a poem about my husband and our eternal love.
Even at the age of fifty
he still captures my attention,
sitting at the worn pine table,
in the little country kitchen.

He is wearing a white tee shirt,
and the sleeves have been rolled up.
He is drinking strong black coffee
and it's from a chipped white cup.

It’s a scene that’s so familiar
for it happens every day.
But, the movie when it started,
then his hair, it was not gray.

When I see the credits rolling,
and the movie's at its end,
They will list him as my co/star.
As my husband, my best friend.

Nominate him for an Emmy,
for the "Best Supporting Role,"
Many years he played the part
Giving all his heart and soul.

“My Ordinary Life,”
it is just a little play,
and this scene portrays a moment,
and they call it “Everyday.”
