Remember When... a Valentine's Reminder

Updated on March 8, 2013

I remember so many things about our love..


I laughed at the jokes that I didn't even get,

and I told you I liked you in that sweater...with the

slightly, 'ill-fit'

and I remember waiting all night in the emergency room,

just to find your were allergic to mushrooms

and when I had to sit waiting for hours,

when we had the one bathroom shoebox

with the always too cold shower

and when we agreed to let your brother stay,

even though I predicted we'd both rue-the-day

and I never said I told you so...

and I even played the villain when it was time to say 'go!'

and attending the the somewhat boring events,

and feigning surprise at uninspired presents

and taking my turn to put the kids to bed,

and rubbing that stinking ointment on your leg

and setting aside that plate,

when yet again ... for dinner you were late

and letting you win at cards...

for God knows, you took losing so hard

and I always had to fall asleep first

cause you snored like a bear

but were as cuddly as a cub when woke,

so who cared...

and remembering the places to touch that tickled,

and never eating the last pickle

and kissing the nape of your neck

and remembering how frisky you would get

and wearing your favorite color on your birthday

and at dinner time, remembering whose time it was to pray

and nights when we stared at the stars,

and sleeping under the same, in that broke down car

and I remember how you stood up for me,

the way of defending my integrity

and I can remember how big I always felt,

even when you made my heart melt

and the cold days, and how we snuggled,

and how adept you were, at the art of the cuddle

and I still remember when you couldn't dance ...

except on my toes,

and over the years how your skills had grown

and you didn't hurt me like you used to...

you only hit my foot every other song or two

but to dance this dance with you

i'd do it all again

till their playing our song in the heavens

over , and over again...

      How beautiful this was! You've captured years of tiny events in one poem that makes us stop and think about all the little things we've shared in our own lives.

      Voted up, awesome, and beautiful.
