You would call me a fool for
Making fun of his messy hair,
His huge hands, his raspy voice,
The way he rolls his eyes and
How his shoe size can fit an
Entire town, and his broad back,
But the truth is
I like it – all of it, because
I can ruffle his messy hair
Any time, shamelessly.
His hands are just the right size
For me to envelope mine
Through them;
Or he could do the same.
His raspy voice is a weakness for
It compliments my squeaky one,
Oh, and how a little giggle escapes
His mouth each time he playfully
Rolls his eyes at me.
I like that I can hide my feet in
His shoes to keep them warm and
Then put them away
Just to spend a little more time
With him, and
I don’t mind his broad back
Because I could always climb
On it, or hide behind it;
My own safe place.
I like him for the way these
Fragments move together to
Make him who he is, and
How I like him for this,
Hoping the feeling is mutual.

The curve was a little
Out of proportion,
And the tail seemed
Quite straight,
The symmetry looked
Uneven and rough,
And her lower lip quivered
In frustration.
She erased her efforts,
And marked on a
New beginning,
For the third time.
But now, finally,
The curve had
Smooth angles,
The tail was perfectly
Pointed at the end,
And the symmetry looked
Absolutely flawless.
A sigh of relief
And chuckle of victory
Of the young, fierce,
Determined three year old
Echoed through out the
Little “a” which she had,
At last, drawn
With perfection.
