This is a topic most men won’t go near
But I’M going there – though filled with some fear
“THE CHANGE OF LIFE” is what my wife went through
A subject about which I haven’t a clue
BUT I CAN’T RESIST!
Her facial hair grew. She was sad and afraid
That she’d have enough hair, she could shave or could braid
I never mentioned all the hair on her lip
She was not in the mood for an immature quip
Those moods could change in the blink of an eye
She would feel low down then zoom to the sky
Her physical changes were easy to see
I got out of her way when she needed to pee!
Hot flashes and chills appeared without warning
Sometimes in the evening, sometimes in the morning
Her internal thermostat had now gone haywire
She was freezing and shaking but still could perspire
Her dry, flaky skin had her scratching and itching
Insomnia at night had twisting and twitching
She was cranky and grumpy, and overall glum
I think she regretted marrying someone so dumb
Her face was all puffy, and so were her ankles
It’s now fair to say that her ankles were cankles
She battled retention that caused her to bloat
Swelled up like a beachball, no doubt she would float
“THE CHANGE” is quite a mysterious event
But my ill-informed jokes were sweet and well-meant
However, my bride didn’t see it that way
So my sense of humor failed to brighten her day
But she had no control over how she might feel
Sometimes she would laugh or would cry or would squeal
Her emotions ran wild from carefree to despair
And I had a knack for making her swear!
ALL BECAUSE –
Menopause is part of the process of aging
And that is the reason her hormones were raging
I finally got smart and stayed out of her way
And she eventually got better!
OH, HAPPY DAY!!!
