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.
Enriched by Stephen Campbell’s charming, full-color illustrations, this touching, wise, and funny book will surely bring a smile of recognition to anyone who has been in a long marriage. 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.

Sonnet 116: Let Me Not To The Marriage Of True Minds - Poem by William Shakespeare
Is there a difference between spending all your time together and being married? The answer is yes. Once you tie the knot, the whole mechanics of the relationship changes. You are tied to each other, you have made a commitment, and you can't simply walk out when things don't go your way. You're in this for the long haul and that commitment makes all the difference. 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.
I studied poetry undergrad and briefly in grad school. So when the time came to court a new beau, whip up a valentine, or give a heartfelt speech, I was always ready with a bounty of words that gave me goose bumps. Plus, there were some serious contemporary gems missing. Variation on the Word Sleep. I would like to watch you sleeping.
