growing old together

To know what she also wants
as opposed to what she merely needs.
Keeping in mind what’s negligible, necessarily.
When to say yes,
and when not to say no.
Knowing how to tell them both seemingly, differently.

When she’s called on you that she’s in a fix,
and when she fixed things all by herself.
Either way, she only wants to be heard, apparently.

When she says she wants to come over,
and when she wants you to be there.
That’s right. That’s all you need to do. Be there, essentially.

Above all, it is an ongoing endeavor
with ample room for trials and errors;
Growing old together is when you try TO GET HER, persistently.
