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..
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.

I enjoyed the uncomplicated tone of this love poem, Gee. After 53 years my wife and I scarcely notice the physical changes, unless we stumble upon our wedding photos. Then all we do is laugh at our ludicrous fashion sense.
Trust and mutual acceptance can iron out most of the wrinkles, but I prefer to consider the strength of corrugated paper.....:-)

Endearingly sweet. 'Every change is part of our story'. This is the way aging should be viewed. And it goes both ways... He gets a belly and losses his hair... is not as debonair as he used to be. lol. May all your joys be found closest to home. I.I.
