Fourteen Years of "us"

On 10th June 1994, a Friday to be exact;
A very very rainy Friday at that,
We said “I Do”.
And now, together with each other for fourteen years;
That’s one jolly strong glue.

The first four years of marriage went off pretty quick
Pretty much like a eyelid that blinks.
For it was just the two of us
Living our life as merry D.I.N.K’s

However, a surefire penchant for trouble;
Sent us stumbling into parenthood on the double;
Along came Appu and that made us three,
And life as D.I.N.K’s flew out of the window very swiftly.

Little did we know what was to come
As we juggled parenthood and officedom
Juggling a child and office sure was not a song to hum
And off I stepped from one plate; Into full fledged Mommydom.

And as Appu into kindergarten grew;
There arrived Trouble Number Two.
Life was then a blur on the fast track;
Days, Months, Years just zipped past – Just Like That !

As we’ve travelled together over the past fourteen years;
Laughter has been aplenty, and a few tears too.
We’ve been through a lot of thick and thin;
And thru it all, we’ve managed to swim.

As all four of us journey life – a path;
It did teach us (and it still does) quite a lot.
Faith, Love, Happiness and Family – bonding like treacle;
And for us, that innate satisfaction of having come A Full Circle.

Come to think of it, actually
The Gods must have laughed holding their bellies
Cos they say “Marriages are made in Heaven”
Oh ! All that plotting and scheming – the Gods sure must have had such fun
A pair of Loony Bins that we’ll remain forever;
No wonder then that fate decided to “institutionalise” us together !!
Like Rita Rudner once said

"It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life."
