She Is Beautiful.

She Is Beautiful.

A Poem by Gee
"

Simple words for my wife

"
I tell her,
"I love you because of
not in spite of "
She sighs,
runs her hands across the "C" section scar,
talks of lipo, tucks.
With an extended "annnnnnd" she fingers her lips,
mentions some film star with a bee stung pout,
talks of tattooed brows,
of laughter lines that require immediate lasering.
I smile, call her over.
She lays in my open arms,
head on my chest,
I hold her, kiss her brow.
She is beautiful.
I tell her that every change is part of our story,
that without these we wouldn't have the life,
the love, the happiness we share.
She sighs, " but "
I raise her face, kiss her gently on her pale, pink lips,
She smiles.....

A beautiful tale, still being told. I reckon we only have ourselves to blame for not being believed, but I totally get why you wouldnt change a thing about her. Every line is part of your story and joking asiide, they never see what we see and vice versa. To look at the person you are with, and just look and admire them quietly, shows its just meant to be.
But then we make a joke and get a dig in the ribs :)

Indeed.....wouldn't swap her for the world. Cheers Lorry
You clearly have a lovely wife, but I hope your wife knows how lucky she is to have you. What is so wonderful is that you are able to articulate to her what she means to you. In my experience, not many men are that forthcoming. They may think it, but they won't say it. Well done Gee, just stay the way you are for a lifetime of happiness. I very much enjoyed your poem.

27 years of married bliss. Wonderful.
Honestly. You guys are so lucky and she is as lucky to have you as you are her. The respect and love you have for your wife is so inspiring. Plus you write nice poems. This was as beautiful as she.

A simple poem can go one of two ways, either it leaves the reader wanting more or it fulfills the reader the first time through. I think the later applies here. I love the simplicity and the love that is shared between the lines. This mirrors a simple relationship full of support and I think your portrayal of that is special.

Nice, i think it could use some refinement, you use alot of words to portray something that could be cut down. It isn't bad, not at all, but its very narrative, which is a curse and a blessing. The story is clear but it makes it less artful. I mean, nothing is ever perfect (oh boy, do i know that). So maybe, start with your quote in the beginning, no need for the "i tell her". Lets see, "Sighing, [her] fingertips trace a "C" Section Scar". Just word choices could turn this from great, to fantastic. LOL, what do i know.
