A Little Love- A Different Kind of Love Poem

Updated on August 6, 2010

A little bit of love from my life...

My beautiful-lovable Abigail
My beautiful-lovable Abigail
The memories of being a child and knowing that my mom was the most beautiful woman ever
The memories of being a child and knowing that my mom was the most beautiful woman ever
Beautiful Flowers and Catching the Bouquet
Beautiful Flowers and Catching the Bouquet
Great Sunsets
Great Sunsets
My trouble makers and love takers. (but they give kisses and smiles in return-so it's okay)
My trouble makers and love takers. (but they give kisses and smiles in return-so it's okay)

What's beautiful in your life?

Love is simple, and it can be seen in all aspects of the world we live in.

So when I have a day that gets to me and crawls underneath my skin.

I stop and look at the world around, and I realize that my life isn’t bad.

There is so many things that bring laughter, why waste my time with being mad.

I love great pajamas and curling up on the couch

I love watching movies from my childhood that star Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch

I love the way that cookies smell when they are baking in the spring

I love standing in the background listening to my toddlers sing.

I love all the memories behind all my dusty antiques

And I love the way that looking through a photo album bring back so many memories.

I love to see my parents hold hands and pull each other close.

I love to watch my one year old play Head-Shoulders-Knees and Toes.

I love the way that rain smells ten minutes before it rains

And I love the jingle jangle sound of a pocket full of loose change

I love the way that a baby’s breath smells

And I love reading out loud for my children, from a book of fairy tales

I love old houses, and the way that their boards squeak

I love Christmas morning when every little kid tries to get a little peak

I love getting flowers for no reason at all

And I love unexpected letters and unforeseen phone calls

I love camping in my grandfather’s hand me down tent, rather than a luxury RV

I love the way that my children hide behind me-like it’s the best way not to be seen

I love sitting on my front porch, listening to the wind

And I love the laughter from down the street coming from my neighbor’s kids

I love that my family pushed me to get my education

And I love that I can show up at my sister’s house without making a reservation

I love that I am loved, by so many people in my life

And I am glad that I was able to find someone who loved me enough to make me a mother and a wife.

I love that I still remember what has made me, me.

And I love the fact that I know who I am and who I want to be.

I love that no one in this world is perfect, because we all have little flaws.

But I love when someone realizes it’s the flaws that make us worth loving at all.

So even when I am angry, hurt or want to give up.

I never say I hate my life- because life has so much that deserves a little love.

      Seafarer Mama-

      Thank you for the encouraging comment. I am glad that you enjoyed the poem. I think people are so negative at times that we all forget to see that there is so much in this world worth loving.

      I was just saying to someone yesterday, that my goal is to focus on everything that is "small" and good in my life! These things are gifts and should be noticed! Especially Big Bird and Oscar, seen again through your child's eyes.

      Your optimism is great, and I wish there'll be a pandemic of it all over.

      I'm so glad I paid you a visit. Great hub

      Excellent.I salute your positive thinking to life. Really there is not any thing to be sad in the life if we adopt a healthy attitude and have a positive view to life. We should assume natural the up and down, Meeting and separation, Sorrow and pleasure. Really good theme, you have threaded in poetry. Thanks.

      Thanks for another comment... I think that you should- if it comes from within it is always a good idea... This poem was to pay tribute to the simple things that bring joy to life. happiness isnt always fireworks, sometimes it is just crickets in the middle of the night :)

      I think I'm going to write something like this for my husband for Valentine's Day. What a beautiful thing to be able to put down on paper/screen and share. Thanks for posting this. It's wonderful to hear someone else besides me loves their life so much, in spite of all the shtuff that sometimes holds us back.

      Alison, You are more than welcome-I thank you for taking the time to read and to comment on this hub. I think if more people took the time to see what they have that is worth a little love-maybe the world would be a happier place and people would enjoy what they have rather than focusing on what they don't have, and being depressed over it.

      This is so beautiful H.C., thank you so much, I really loved it and the pictures were the perfect complement to the words which really struck a chord with me - especially 'why waste my time with being mad' which is exactly what I have decided in my own life, life is too short.

      I'm not much into poetry, but I must admit that reading your poems I'm beginning to appreciate it more. And this sentence is so true: "There is so many things that bring laughter, why waste my time with being mad.""

      Great hub, rated and stumbled. :)

      DeGreek,

      Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at this very simple and basic poem--- :) Thanks for the comment- I have learned to embrace being overly sensitive rather than trying to fake that I am not. It never did me much good anyways

      Thanks Ken- Yep...That second picture is me and my mom :) I remember believing that she was the greatest, most perfect, most beautiful woman in the world at that age. I guess not much has changed- I still think she is great-is as perfect as she wants to be and is one of the most beautiful people from the inside out that I have ever met :) Thanks for your compliment, I guess I have grown to look much like my mom.
