Title is our weekly prompt: caution, reader! It rhymes. Won’t sell.
I wish I hadnt run from you,
But would you still have caught me?
Or would you pause and think again,
About that ring you bought me?
If I’d not seen you leave the bath,
A giant, an Adonis,
I might have let you walk away,
Instead, I made a promise.
I rather wish I hadnt cussed,
Your manners were impeccable,
You called again though nonetheless,
Hot dam! I was acceptable!
I wished I hadnt laughed so loud,
Or danced, or drank that wine,
But you called and said, “let’s meet again
And thought that I was fine.
I wish I hadn’t brazenly
Told you who I was,
Or what I thought, or what I felt,
Revealing all my flaws.
But of all the many crazy things
I wish I didn’t do,
I’m glad I didn’t try to be
Someone else for you.
SOMEONE ( guess who? saw you for the REAL, WONDERFUL,SMART, BEAUTIFUL, person you are!!
well, I dont know about all THAT, but am all the more grateful!
Yep! I agree! You both are a great gift to each other and I was so happy to see that! Here’s to many more years of being who you are with the one who appreciates that!
Thanks…it wouldnt have worked, ten years ago, twenty or even thirty years ago. Aint life strange?
Julie! You have GOT to publish!
