Discover Love

Give It A Try

It's snowing out here

The wind is fierce

I am warm and well rested

Thinking of all the times I have enjoyed the most in my life

Love comes up time and time again

So I do the normal thing

Put it out of my mind completely

Then I start to write

Love comes back in my sights

So I turn away

Look at the headlines on the internet

I am shocked and once again disappointed to what I see

My cat Charlette climbs up next to me

With one paw up lets me know she wants to be rubbed

I rub her a little then she curls under my arm to say

Don't stop now

I am loved

So I get up and get something to eat

Listening to the wind howl

I fill the empty hole in my stomach

I look and my wife put the dishes away

Got things already for work

Paid the mortgage while I was a sleep

That is love

I roll back into bed and give my wife a hug

She is sound asleep

I rub her back and her head

I hear her sigh

She softly says

That feels so good

I am not sure if she woke up for the moment

Maybe she is talking in her sleep

Either way I know she feels my love

We will continue on with our day

Both will have to go to work

We don't always like our jobs

I do know we do go to work thinking

Our jobs give us freedom

That we can afford to pay our bills

Have a home that one day we will own

Spending more time together

Is really what makes everything beautiful

Love comes in so many forms

Why fight it

I think back to my own mother and father who have both passed

If I could bring back any memory through my whole life

I remember when they hugged

I could feel the passion

The deep concern for each other

The look in each others eye

I got your back and you got mine

Know matter what happens in our life

Everything will work out

I look down at my pajamas

A favorite pair of mine

It.'s not the name or who gave them to me

It is they are so comfortable

I know these pajamas from all the rest

Because they have a hole in them

I keep meaning to fix

It makes them more special

I look around my home not house

I see what changes we have made over the years

We painted the kitchen together

We used a paint tape around the corners in the ceiling

We left the tape on too long

It never came out just right

Little bits of tape stuck

To this day that is where they stay

I see the pictures of our family around

They are of my nieces and nephews

They have that awkward smile

Like you put me up to this

I am here

Take the picture already

There is love

I see my wife's cook books tucked in a corner

Her favorite one is with her mothers and grandmothers hand written recipes in it

I just love to eat every time she cooks

Love is here in so many shapes and sizes

I begin to describe it

Then as my attention goes elsewhere

I focus on other things

Sooner or later I know I will come back

Just where I left off

Love keeps us together

No sense trying to fight it

Just enjoy it and share it any way you see fit

Love will take on a mind of it's own

Growing leaps and bounds

Through your children and your pets

No doubt

Maybe to your cranky neighbor

The mean lady on the phone

The guy that always has a puss on his face

My wife and I call him Mr. Happy

The beauty of it all

Is when you least expect it

It happens

Love will be here long after we are gone

it came long before we were born

Love more than you ever have

Love will make you the happiest you could ever be

It comes with a money back iron clad guarantee

jhamann I try my best. Some good poems. Some are a working progress. All come from somewhere special in my mind that keeps thinking and thinking all the time. The poems I like the best are ones that make you smile in the beginning , scratch your head in the middle and smile again in the end. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Pleasant dreams and wonderful thoughts for a better tomorrow.

This was a most wonderful and delightful look at love. My hubby is away for 10 days and Sid misses his papa. So since only mama is around every night he climbs up on my hip and sleeps there. He will be one happy cat when my hubby returns on Friday. I think that is a wonderful way to look at it that love has always been and always will be.

Gypsy Rose Lee It is nice to be apart because when you are both together again it is new and exciting and you have so much to say and do. Being separate makes the heart grow fonder. Only for short periods of time. After that I find it extremely difficult. I am sure you and Sid will make the best of it and Friday will be here before you know it. The magic of love touches us all. Thank you for sharing special times and commenting so often. It is nice to write a poem or story and finding someone interested in it too.
