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.....

Thank you...
Oh my goodness, there's the love story, right there in your words.
I have those scars too but never once questioned them. They are my 'tour tattoos', a visible sign I gave life, not once but twice.
You are right. She is beautiful. She just needs to believe it.

Oops, thank you
I like poems that rhyme, but rhyme isn't everything. What captivates me most about your piece is that you display a level of vulnerability and honesty that is truly felt throughout your poem. A warm emotion produced through time-enduring love. I can step into your shoes and experience your moment for a moment. Good job!

A rare state of affairs today
Simplicity can often be the best form of honesty with situations like this.

Well done.

A gently kind poem. Sometimes people (men too) need to be reassured.. But .. there is always a but!'
I have still got my C section scar. So I have a great deal of sympathy for your very lucky wife.'

Thank you Norah, she’s is a wonderful lady
The opening line is something everyone longs to hear. I'm so bummed when I see women who can't see what you're pointing out here . . . that the wrinkles & scars are precious, not to be erased! Love your loving attitude toward your hunny & also love this message to our sad fake beauty standards! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
