"...I would be a man with many pennies"

20 August 2010
Ok, so I feel a little strange posting this poem since it's about me, but It's just further proof of how hilarious (and occasionally sweet) Eric is.



If I had a penny for every time you made me smile,
Or blew me away with your artistic style;

Made me lunch when you weren’t in the mood,
Yet did it with love and without any ‘tude;

Washed my dishes (except for the pots),
Or went to the gym to keep your body real hot;

Put up with my humor and laughed at my jokes,
Moved to Omaha to live with my folks;

If I had a penny for every time you made me laugh out loud,
Or put up with my cynicism when I am a rain cloud;

Listened to my work stories about claims adjusters,
Or tolerated daily briefs about the Cornhuskers;

Served me in ways I do not deserve,
Or been a treat for my optical nerves;

Made me feel grateful that you are my wife,
And been the best friend I’ve had in my life;

Given me confidence when I don’t have any,
Then, my love, I would be a man with many pennies.

Oh I love this! Did Eric write it or is it another "Rose" knock-off? :) Mighty impressed.

Such creativity! Kudos, Eric. Peter writes me goofy song lyrics, tweaking the lyrics we already have, which is very amusing. Oh yeah, you already know about this - "Naked Bear..." 'nuff said. Congrats on 7 years you two!
