To See What Others Miss

Updated on October 11, 2010

Take Time To Enjoy

As one day rushes into another like the leaves blowing in the wind and circling around until they are mixed together in a corner

I am here with you

I am the one who is touched by your friendship

You may never say a word or show me in any special way

I know it to be true and I experience it every time I am with you

May it be day or night

I have wonderful thoughts of us just having fun together

I hold no secrets

The pleasure happens each time you speak

I just listen and my insides know it to be true

They are often silent

But they have a voice

One of passion and pleasure

They don't dress up and get all high and mighty

They do go where ever you go

More often than not they never get any praise

Some people don't even think that I exist

I know otherwise

Because without me functioning constantly and doing my job so well

You wouldn't have anything that you acquired or desired

If I didn't do my job day after day

I make sure you are healthy and all your organs work together as a team

Now what happens next is just expected

I take a back seat and just deserve to be mentioned is that to much to ask

You insist on getting  all the credit

You get in your moods and I never have a say

I keep going strong when you are tired and sleep

I do what I do because I know I make things work

I try to teach you more about life than you want to know

You often get mixed up in petty arguements and useless chatter

I remind you time to time with a growl

Please , please be good

Take care of your body that I worked so hard to make

We have a long life together and many friends to meet

As our family grows and all the members have a little bit of me

I feel confident life is so much more than meets the eye

Since I never get the attention I deserve

I often get yelled at because of my genes

My own family constantly complains

When their hair falls out

When they are too small

When your nose is too big or freckles are in all the wrong places

Just remember I keep you safe and always try my best

You are on with your life but I am deep in your chest and run through your whole body

I am like glue I keep you from falling apart

I am so much more than you will ever know

I will take a bow now because I am responsible for everything from your head to your toes

      Poetvix You keep making me smile.I am starting to do what my wife and other women have learned to do for years multi-task.I can smile and type at the same time.Alright it's a start.Have a great day of great dreams and soon you can make them reality!

      Nellieanna It also could be about our genes.How we never totally understand who we are.But yet so incredible we are never satisfied.I don't get it.When can we just say I am pleased and my life is complete.Thank you for understanding the inner me who loves to be let out and talk to the world.

      Your number is high on my scale, Dream On. This is one of your best poems- and that is saying a LOT! You capture so much truth and feeling in every line. You engage my mind to run along beside the lines and try to know the full scope of meaning you encompass. This one may be about the air we breathe, the blood that carries it to every nook cranny of our bodies - or it may be about the soul and awareness of life we get to have here on earth. If we didn't feel the "downs" - we couldn't feel the "ups" - so get to feel it all.

      Thanks again for a lovely visit and peek into your sweet being.

      Of course - it gets my vote and the main buttons pushed!

      Micky Dee I think I keep making deposits in the wrong account.I never see the numbers go up just down,down,down.Well life is full of many different opportunities.I just have to pick some new ones and watch my money grow.Hope your having so much fun and that gives you the energy to ride your bike all day.Thanks for giving a little more when so many others forget the golden rule.
