What I So Love about You

You come alive

On summer days

With endless blue sky

Not a cloud in sight

Your heart delights

When you recognize

Riding high, sailing by

A parachute in flight

You beam with delight

When you get the green light

It’s your turn to skydive

Now you know you’re alive

So you saunter to the Cessna

You’re the enchanter as you banter

Till you reach for the cord

And Jump for your reward

On horseback, you’re the master

As you Gallop and you canter

You dismount with pride

Still fresh from the ride

Horses sweat, getting wet

Mucking out, you never fret

Where-ever you wander, it’s a bet

You’ll be beset

By small children and animals

Don’t need your credentials

They instinctively know your potential

In your heart, love’s essential

You still smile like a child

As the first snow pile high

you'll Step outside and play awhile

Bluebells in spring

Robins singing

Such joy they bring

I love the way you love

Puppies and penguins

Meerkats and macaws

You’re generous and adventurous

With you, love’s harmonious

Never acrimonious

In this journey of life

Unlike Lot’s wife

You learn from the past

But seldom look back

These are the things I so love about you.

      Even mucking stalls! Fond memories. The lines starting at horseback riding and then children stick with me, you have created an incredible man. A real man, some would say. Thank you for this excellent poem, almost spilled my coffee but went into this with a firm grip. Jamie
