Small Irritants

Has someone that you love done something to
Diminish your good quality of life?
Before you jump to talk the matter through
With inconsiderate husband or wife

A pause might take consideration for
Preventive of much future misery:
Would you this shortcoming so much abhor
If from police tonight a call there be

Telling you there had been an accident
And you would never see your love again?
From the perspective by that absence lent
Would you wish to return to moments when

It only be required to tolerate
Small irritants, such joy to recreate?
