A 4-Ring Circus: Bri's Married Life

In my youth there were circuses that had rings (three):
in BIG tents, or buildings, they entertained kids like me,
using three circular areas in which could be found:
gymnasts, lions, acrobats, a dancing bear, & a clown.


My adult life has been a ‘circus' with rings (four) ,
a 'marriage-circus' with gold finger rings that I wore
to say to all: "I've chosen to partner with this, my wife."
Alas, my first three rings have been removed —due to strife.


But my LAST ring stays on —unless I'm taking a shower.
It's NOT that there's no strife; there IS. But there is a power
which keeps us together through the marital ‘Thick & Thin'.
And I feel, with each passing year, this will be for us a WIN!
