We Had A Good Time


The classroom I didn't like,
Spelling my name like the mouse;
On the way home riding my bike,
Past the cute little girl's house.

Then home and all alone,
Just me in my room;
In a world all my own,
My imagination could bloom.


Saturday's we'd sit in the dark,
Gulping up celluloid fuel;
On the way home we'd play in the park,
After finding a stick/sword for our duel.

Let me put it this way,
So my poem will rhyme;
At the end of the day,
We had a good time.

Hitchhiking to the shore,
In groups of two or three;
Our adventures became lore,
Swashbucklers on a teenage sea.

Then one night at a dance,
Though it was not my kind of place;
I lifted my head and perchance,
I was captured by her face.

Happy with just her touch,
Love filled our teeming house;
Though besides kids there wasn't much,
She couldn't have been a better spouse.

Let me put it this way,
So my poem will rhyme;
At the end of the day,
We had a good time.

Oh, this is so beautiful. Women like to know exactly how their man feels about them, and you've made your love for your wife so clear in this poem. I believe, feel, that a man who loves his wife/girlfriend makes her as well as all women in the world happy.

Gosh, you must have been too proud for your shirt with such a beautiful girlfriend :))

That is so stunningly powerful a notion to me, that anyone would love, and find it easy to love, so personal and simple an expression from me - thank you so much.
