Absolutely perfect! I think there would be no need for fights at all! Both would just live in perfect bliss.

I like how you said your aunts heart stayed intact. That sets the tone for being able to have humor and find true love or happiness. This is such a positive and funny poem with a message that we can decide to be joyous in a difficult situation. Well done :-)

This work has reached the exceptional level

Hello Friend,
It's a nice piece of poetry meeting the desired norms, having perfectly matching the theme phraseology, and transparently depicting its theme.
Smooth and enchanting flow throughout from the beginning to the end with lovely rhyming scheme.
The last stanza, and the last two lines are particularly noteworthy:
"..."I think I've found True Love, " Auntie said.
"All our fights would be in vain!"
Best of Luck!

HAHAHAHA --- oh dear, all their fights might be in vain, but so would a lot of other things. (I agree with your notes too -- there's no better way to overcome problems, whether illness or disability. Laughter truly is wonderful medicine.)

Good luck in the booth.

A very amusing poetic work. I guess you could say no one can ever predict how, where or when true love will strike. LOL! Great job on this one! Good luck in the contest.

This is so sweet! Talk about looking on the bright side! I think you've written a charming poem based on imagining certain circumstances that might be! (Or else, possibly, your lovely aunt!)

    It was an honest-to-gawd true story about my aunt. She was very funny and upbeat.

It sounds like she not only found true love, but indeed found true wisdom, "hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil" takes on a new lustre and meaning. Well done, a great post, a very fun -sharing one indeed. Written in very clever rhyming quatrains and ballad style abcb. Well done, good luck, blessings, Roy

This is wonderful. Humor always makes something negative into something that lightens the mood. This is so creative and a great story. I love how nicely it rhymes. Good luck in the contest.
