I thought about doing something ‘light’ for a change. A lot of girlfriends have said most of my poems make them cry and so, here goes….hope it puts a little smile on your lips.
Poetry featured in the book of poetry called ‘The Forsaken Muse, A Woman’s Journey from Sorrow to Hope’ ~ *
You know I am no pin-up girl, vital stats quite ordinary
I fumble and am clumsy
Not the best cook in the kitchen either;
Driving is not my cup of tea ,
and street direction am hopeless in.
I laugh and smile too much
Cry at the silliest things..
Always teary-eyed, mushy, a softie
Known to dance non-stop crazy.
I wear quirky clothes that seldom match
Throw me a ball, I may not catch.
I don’t pretend am a vamp in bikini…
And oh dear, sexy high-heels are not for me.
So why me, my sweetheart?
I guess I don’t seem like the best girl around.
But I have love though,
Lots and lots of it,
and smiles that never run out for you.
I love people, love life,
I don’t pretend,
I am real, unsophisticated in fact,
But more than anything, I believe in you.
I’m your number one cheerleader, you might say,
But sweetheart, I guess you knew that anyway.
