Love And Security

Love And Security short poem

Photo by amslerPIX

If I should succeed in crossing all my T’s and become a person of renown and nobility
If I should place all my ‘commas’ in all the right places, pausing where I should
If I should stop at all the signs requiring me to, and place all my ‘periods’ where they belong

If I should dot all my i ‘s and little j ’s too, and live a good and decent life all my days
If I should find happiness and fulfillment through my church, my country, and my career
If the outside world should view me as warm and wise, and approach me ever so respectfully

I must say that all such accomplishments would render me grateful and most appreciative
Nevertheless, if I should fail in making my wife feel secure and knowing by me she is loved
Then I shall ever be, and rightfully so, a man both unfinished and unfulfilled

“Then I shall ever be, and rightfully so, a man both unfinished and unfulfilled”

Providing love and security is of such high importance for a man to give the woman in his life. Thank you for the wonderful poem.

There is a completely different perspective i get to see in your poems. It’s musical, it’s always coming from an ideal yet possible world, Or leading to an ideal world. Always brings hope and shine, new flavor to life, It’s like you know the taste of beautiful things and you savor them in your writings and how to take them and abide by them during the course of life.. It must be a life long learning process.

It’s always heart warming reading your poems. though I don’t comment much on your poems, because i am always left speechless and could not jot down perfect words to write. I finally decided to write today.
