All I need

It took some time and a minuscule wisdom to sink in

that I don’t have to be picture-perfect and thin

To be loved to distraction and love endlessly in return

All I need is a heart brimming adoration and concern

A mind with its windows open to every possibility

A remarkable sensitivity and artistic sensibility

A pair of eyes to discern and know

What needs to be nipped and what should grow

A pair of hands to be held and hold

A confidante whom you trust enough to grow old

  1. Your poems are turning into pearls of wisdom…pithy, succinct, and epigrammatic. This comes with years of practice. God bless you! Keep it up.
