The You I Love

When you lose your temper with me
For misplacing papers or keys

I know you are worried

And the future gives you a scare

I know then, you love me.

When you come home weary and tired
But are ready to go get groceries
With nary a frown

Just so we could spend some us time
I do know you love me.

When you call long distance

And talk about people

you scarce care about

Just to hear my voice

I just know you love me.

When we have shouting matches

And ugly ego clashes

I know you are afraid inside

Of losing me one day

And I know you love me.

When you stay away from home

So that our future is secure

And the kids’ needs are taken care of

When we won’t be around

I so know you love me.

When you wrap your arms around me

In the morning when we wake up

When I am not looking my best

And utter just one word, “tea”

I sure as hell know that you love only me.

  1. The ordinary comes out extraordinarily speaking about something extraordinary.. loved your mundane life, living the love, you love, thus making it out of the worldly… A round of applause for you and your words.. love love ‘shona’.. πŸ˜œπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘’πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

  2. i love the love and love the poem, nothing I don’t love about the feeling it has given me and I know why he loves you because you are absolutely adorable. I also love this feisty woman I read between the lines. It is the love you give him unconditionally that enlarges his love for you and the family

    1. I am so glad that you read this and liked it. I know when I said I can’t write about love, you never believed me. Thus I wanted you to read it so that you know you were right. 😊
      Thank you so very much dear. πŸ€—πŸ’•
