Fait Accompli

Poetic Asides November 2013 Poem-A-Day Challenge – Day 19: a “love” or “anti-love” poem

Fait Accompli

All day, I’ve tried to get this right
to say some things that don’t sound trite
or too much like a greeting card.
But I have found this poem hard
because the subject of this ode
has walked with me down every road,
has cheered me on when I have failed
and fixed my wheels when they derailed.
But nothing in a silly rhyme
can match my gratitude for time
that clearly saw the hand of fate
pick out for me the perfect mate.
