The Simple things

This is one of my first poems that I shared with my friends…they loved it so much…now I’m sharing this with you…hope you like it:)

Its not the bigger things that count

You might buy me expensive jewelry

But I would rather

Share a moment with you

Watching the setting sun

It’s the simple things about you

That I count as treasures

A smile as I wake you up

Yawning and stretching

The kisses at odd times

The way you brush away my tears

Your voice with a hint of a laugh

As you see me pout

The mischievous winks and smiles

When nobody’s watching

The way you creep up

and hug me as I cook

The silly little arguments

The silence as we walk by the beach

Just the two of us

In our very own world

Together today and for eternity

    this could almost be written as marriage vows, it very accurately shows how much a couple can love doing things together more than the material things they get for each other. This makes me remember my wedding! Thank you 🙂

  28. #55 by splashofexpression on July 23, 2010 - 3:00 AM

    “The mischievous winks and smiles/When nobody’s watching” What is great about love is the couple’s language that develops. What a hunger for pancakes really means or crooked smile when holding a laugh or the way a head is turned and from the back you know if there is a smile or tear on her face. I believe there was a Freshly Pressed post about Couple’s who develop their own language after being together for so long. Great simple picture to go with a poem about the little simple things.

    • #56 by hoiden on July 24, 2010 - 2:21 AM

      really?…wil check out the post…thank u for stopping by 🙂 🙂

  29. #57 by joanny on July 23, 2010 - 5:34 AM

    Romantic and tender and filled with loving thoughts about your partner. The appreciative sentiments for all that your partner gives you. A wonderful kind of love to have.
