Of all the Things



(There are so many good things out there, but the best one is actually just right beside us)

                                                             Of all the Things


Of all the things I adore
your smile I can’t ignore
for it extends to your eyes
and deep into your soul
screaming gently with honesty
and purity 
like a child so innocent
so vibrant
so free


Of all the things I admire
your streaks of gray hair I can’t ignore
for it makes you more attractive
and even charming
screaming softly
with wisdom
and great sense
of maturity


Of all the things I revere
your soft, short bristles I can’t ignore
for it looks perfect on you
screaming delightfully
with joyful interests
and a sincere
of humor


Above all things there is
your warm and comforting
embrace is what makes sense
for it calms my weary heart
screaming for a peaceful
sweetest night
with you
