 Tuesday is a Very Important Day...

Happy Birthday, Bob Pych!


For Robert Pych—November 3, 2020


Happy birthday, my darling—

Ninety-one is definitely worth celebrating!


because there’s so much to celebrate—

reasonably good health

great family, close friends

a comfortable life

but most of all

truly, truly, most of all

this is the perfect time to toast

enduring love, in these, our golden years


for we live a gentle life

with lots of I love yous

and spontaneous embraces

that generate smiles throughout the day


We take care of one another

and consider each other

in our own unique ways—

You’ve endured plenty of poetry readings

I’ve been known to flip

through magazines at the racetrack

We frequently gather at the Scrabble board

and squabble about those two-letter words

that you find so irksome

or by the TV, where we really, really try

to find something mutually agreeable to watch


Every evening we join hands in prayer to God

for all the people we love

and some we’ve never met

whose names are given to us by others


Who would ever have thought

love would keep on growing

and be so tender and sweet

as hair gets greyer

wrinkles get deeper

memories get muddier

and backs get achier

but the truth is

at least in our case, it does


May you live to be 100+, hubby!

Sto lat! Sto lat, my dear!!!

Maude Carolan Pych
