Gal Friday

Truth is
if you’d asked me
12 years ago

where I would
see myself today

I would say – here.

Over the years
I’ve been greeted
with disbelief and
sometimes anger

by people who think
that I am settling for
less than I can get

and I just laugh.

If it wasn’t work they
would call it fun and

anyway, I’m good at it.

I laughed when he said
he can’t remember life
without me because
I can tell when I’m
being winded up
but I can hear
the truth in it, too.

If you’d asked me
12 years ago
where I thought
he would be by now

I would say – here.

But if you asked me if
I thought we would have
gotten here if we hadn’t
done it together then
I would just laugh.

That’s what the woman
who stands behind the
great man does, after all.

Everybody who is anybody knows who the real boss is around here, anyway. Happy Anniversary to me!
