Recently, I had a light-hearted discussion, with a certain poet I know, about our lives and moments in them. During the discussion, I was informed that my memory appears to be leaving me.
I wrote this poem as a tribute to us men --- we may forget, but we still love our women and are lucky that our women put up with us.
P.S. Smile, Jill ;-)
I may not always remember a date
I may leave some things in the hands of fate
Sometimes, I may miss our anniversary
But, that being said, you mean the world to me
I may not do things in the manner you do
But, this does not matter; my heart remains true
You will always be a sweet treasure I’ve found
Even if to amnesia I’m hopelessly bound
I may not always see the world in your light
Sometimes, my mind can be as dark as the night
At times, I am as blind as a man can be
And wonder why you waste a minute on me
One thing is for certain, you’ll always be cool
Even if I act like a moronic fool
You are the best gift that my life has been given
Even if by hopelessness my head is driven
I may not always recall your birthday
I may lack the skill to find the words to say
Sometimes, I know that I do not realize
How special these things are in a woman’s eyes
But, this much is certain; my heart’s yours to keep
Even if I may seem ungrateful or cheap
By caring, regardless, you show me I can
Be worthy enough to be known as your man

|You couldn't let me have the last word, could you? HA!!! At least you didn't mention PMS in there. That's probably enough for a novel, though, huh? ;-)
Cute poem, Nate. For what it's worth, I'm glad I put up with you and will always overlook it, when your memory fails. I appreciate you, just the way you are.
P.S. I am smiling!
