Hey you

Hey you

A Poem by Fran Marie

I love your little imperfections
the way you don't
cross you Ts
and then swing those 
off centered dots
on your little I s

spilling your earl grey
tea because your eyes
 are glued to the morning 
news paper ..darting back and forth
 like watching a tennis match.
.trying not to miss the small print

hey you

I love your little perfections
the way you
you see me 
love me ..
everyday
in everyway...
loving my little
imperfections..

your gentle touch
affection ..caring
so much.even when
our journey proves
rough and the road
we travel loses a tad 
more color

and we both lost
our rose colored glasses
along the way

But.. hey you

you're the one that remains true to my
heart..

we're so imperfectly
perfect for each other
because we're as one
synchronized beat 
in time

What a sweet poem! Not overdone. Honest.

I'm in love with the "hey you" refrain -- all the gentle adoration without the eye roll factor of a "babe, honey, dear, sweetie" etc.

Thank you for your words!

sorry to be

with my reply
I do appreciate;
In my experience of longterm relationships around me (I haven't had one), I find that people nitpick in the worst ways about the dumbest stuff. That's why your poem seems to be the antidote to this human frailty, as you draw a word picture of how it looks when a person doesn't just ACCEPT your shortcomings, but actually ENJOYS them! This is what we all crave in a friend or lover (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

This has a lovely, gentle undercurrent. So sentimental and romantic, with so many subtle gestures of love well expressed. I particularly liked the emphasis of the fading of the rose tinted glasses and yet the love remains. True love left intact beyond the scars of time. Well done

What a lovely offering to read. The beauty of love portrayed as more than Valentine hearts and chubby cherubs shooting arrows and blowing kisses. Young love might think it's full of fire and passion but there's nothing so hot as the bed of embers after the flames die away. Young love might think it's full of passion but it's really full of uncertainty and fear. While older love is like fine wine, getting better all the time or a comfortable pair of jeans that can't be replaced, no matter how threadbare they may seem. Older love has comfort and security and peace and a love of the familiar. Many's the time I would have traded all the Yankee Know-How in my lovers for a bit of Southern comfort. But living with your best friend and soul mate and sharing your name and life with them has to be the best. I know it is for me. :)

This is a love poem. One with a difference because it's not slushy, mushy love. It's real love which takes on board the imperfections as well as the good points. It's love that comes over time and experience of being together and knowing each other so well. I loved this poem Fran Marie. It's my cuppa tea.
