Pearl Anniversary

After thirty years of marriage
To celebrate our anniversary
My wife and I
Went back once again
To our honeymoon hotel
And this time it was I
Who chose to sit alone
In the bathroom
And cry

A poem about a couple returning to celebrate their pearl wedding anniversary at their honeymoon hotel is both beautifully rendered and heartrendingly sad.
