Just Be Happy

I want the joy that you can see in my smile

 that even when you are miles away

 I’d come alive, in your mind, in your heart

 that you would remember every bit of me

 even when you close your eyes

 I want the bliss that you can hear in my laughter,

 that even when you are in a crowded room

 you’d hear my voice, messing up the lyrics when singing,

telling stories I’ve told over a hundred times

 I want the happiness that you can smell in my perfume

 that even when you are in a place filled

with wonderful aromas and scents

 you’d smell the fragrance I wear when I am with you

 I want the delight that you can savor on my lips

 that even when you are feasting over a delicious meal,

 you’d remember the taste of my lips as we kiss

 tenderly and passionately

 over and over, like it’s our first

 I want the ecstasy that you can feel in my touch

 that even when you are in a respectful

handshake over a business deal

 you’d remember our love whenever

we hold hands, and we embrace

I want you to be happy, no fuss, and no drama

no need for a grandstanding spectacle

just you, being happy,

with me

  2. Yes! What a beautiful message and poem, SweetMich!
    All should seek this kind of love…such self-giving, self-sacrificing, wonderful love! All should model this kind of love…the kind of love needed in the world! When we model love at it’s bestest we get love in return! πŸ™‚

  3. So sweet and beautiful…it makes me think I see sweet older couples (like my grandparents age) together holding hands. I always think I hope for that same beautiful love and tenderness with my hubby in 30, 40, 50, and so on years. 😊❀️❀️
