I’m going with him
I can’t stop my grin
The way my knees jerk
When I think of him
I get all jittery
Like a 30’s jitterbug
Jitterbugging to our love song
Still going strong
After all of these years
After all of these tears
Then you appear
You are him
And I am me
I am going with you
All I ever long to do
Is have more time with you
All of our lives through
Shared, time spared
For those around us
That love us
That we love
It’s always been you
The one that makes my love jitterbug
Makes my knees shake
Makes my earth quake
Every kiss, every breath of mine you take
Your eyes see so far into me
He’s coming to see me
To bring me
To our secret place
Wrapped in our shared space
Gazing into your face
Your eyes so green
I see possibilities I’ve never seen
All I long to see
It’s always been him
I’m going with him.
And I can’t stop my grin.

Sweet and lovely
Every kiss, every breath of mine you take…
Thank you. How I do love him. There aren’t enough words out there to do it justice 🙂
Aww thats so sweet.. Something to dedicate you and your him;)
words are nothing but sounds in the air
you mix them with feelings
and they convey the emotions
some easily available but some rare….
the words of feelings are delicate than the heart
that contains them
hence, caution is important
in mixing words with ’em emotions
Love sees no justice
there isn’t a quantity
knows no boundary
just love him with all your capacity….
May such a love never die…..
….I second that! 😀
I am clapping. There are turns and things. and it just flowed along. Not a necessary, but a good quality.
The picture at the end. Really good job. and a leap… i’d say. from the others?
You write more poems. We’ll leave judging to non-“amer- ‘i-can’ other-worldly crazies. 😉
Thank you Jim. Yes it is a different style. I wanted to play with the tenses and the words a little.
All you. You cant fake easy flo. u know?
Very nice and loving.
Yes. I wrote this while I was waiting for ‘Him’ to get home from work so we could go on our ‘date’ night. We go weekly. 😀
Your poems make me want to tell you I love you. Lol. Good stuff.
Awww 😀 sweet but don’t 😉 lol
You know how to play with simplest words and make a poem so beautiful!
Thank you so much. That means a lot to me. This one was a fun play for me. It just flowed out while I was waiting for Him to arrive home from work for our date night.
You are most welcome 🙂
Reblogged this on Spontaneous Creativity.
Thank you for the re blog once again.
Sigh of contentment…fills the heart…thanks.
😀 I want to make you over flow with warm fuzziness 😉
Loved this as it also captures how I feel about my husband of 14 years…how lucky are we? x Thanks again for some inspirational words xx
We are indeed lucky. Alex is my ‘most favorite’ adult. He’s the best Dad, husband and friend ever! 😀
It’s encouraging to see somebody so in love with somebody. It’s a beautiful poem. Thank you for sharing.
Indeed in love. We have our days, but days like when I wrote this are the reminders that l indeed chose well. 😀
You are both very lucky. Never forget that. 🙂
I think you might be mistaken. That doesn’t look like me at all.
Oh sorry Brian. My bad, can you email me a photo? Thanks 😀
VERY nice, Jennifer. True love and devotion behind those words.
I’m glad that came through. Words just never seem to do my emotions justice when I write about Him.
Your words more than explain your love, very lovely, Jenn.
Thank you. 😀 I could write a poem a day about Him 🙂
That’s so sweet:-)
I love this poem for many reasons, but the first because I read it and think of my Him. We’ve been together continuously since June 1986 (married in August 1989). It hasn’t always been easy, but at the core of our relationship, I feel: life without Him is unimaginable, life with Him is all I need and could ever want. On a silly note, it’s cool that Him and you are in a rowboat. For us, it would be a canoe, but my happiest pictures of Him are when He is outdoors, in nature. Lovely poem.
We have been going to Alex’s family’s cottage since we met. There is this old green metal row boat that we often go out on he just rows let’s me sit and gaze at him. It’s so much nicer and more intimate than being on the sail boat…
Yes. there is just something about nature isn’t there?
Awww so sweet! He is a lucky man as are you a lucky woman to share such a love. Keep it close to your heart always. Best wishes. Lovely poem!
Thank you. I will always cherish and protect out love.
Holy shit. I landed on your page by accident. I write, I love writing but I hate it too at times. I read stuff.., so much STUFF and it’s all so “oh check me out and my really complicated poetry” but this my dear blogging page person.., this is what we would refer to in England as “the dogs bollocks”. This piece of writing is honest and I’ll be damned if I read that much honesty. I’ve never met you and never intend to but this page smells of love. There aren’t many pieces of writing that convince me of love. Well done. Bloody well done.
Thank you so much. Yours is by far my favorite comment of all time. Such kind words. It is all I hope for to express emotion through my writing. So thank you for happening upon my writing, enjoying it and taking the time to share with my your thoughts.
You are very fortunate to
have those feelings and thoughts!
I wish my battlefield would clear
So I too could feel that way.
Well I wish the same for you as well.
Thank you for your warm wishes.
Awwww This is so sweet. You are very lucky.
I am indeed a lucky lady.
Beautiful brought tears of happiness to my eyes. I am so happy to see that love like that still exists. Thank you for sharing this.
I’m glad that it brought hope to you.
this is so cute……what a lucky guy!
I’ll tell him as much 😉 lol
u got great composition too… even with simple words… amazing! 🙂
Thank you 🙂
Hey there “Mrs”! I love your genuine style with this poem! You’re sleeve must love wearing your heart on it 😉 May you and Alex continue to have a united and happy love. Thanks for sharing your love vibes 😉
Thank you. 🙂
I think it would suit everyone well to learn to be more open. I have an easier time being open when I write much more so then when I speak!
Yep, I agree, I wish more people were open! haha, yes, same here, I am far more transparent when writing rather than verbalising 😉
It’s so nice to read and see stories and real examples of true love. It offers hope, and I like that. You are a lucky person. And it sounds like you know that. 🙂
Life sure isn’t all roses and butterflies but I have my moments of appreciation and I try my best to let my Mr know how much I care for him 🙂
Real relationships aren’t perfect, and Perfect relationships aren’t real, but its nice seeing TWO people showing their love for each other.
