Poetic Dan

Sometimes I forget

Just when you think you couldn't love and adore her any more

She goes and grows a child tightly to her core


Laying in bed hearing her creep for a pee late

Knowing that what's inside her is our mixed up dna


The short little naps to rest her aching back

The mind thats started losing track of this and that

That beautiful little glow that's loving lifes flow 

I've never felt so grateful for not being shown the door


I should tell her this more often, how special she really is. 

For seeing past my tissue, when I can't see myself

When Sprinklings turns to waterfalls, mood swings out of this world


Silly me of course she knows how amazing she is, anyone else would put me back on shelf.

        That it is beautiful and raw, dark and light.
        So much better in a blister and broety life
        Where all doors are open and no one has to hide

        Happy Sunday to you my inspirational muse
        I think that's another one I'll copy play with too ;)

          Love Dion’s song! He’s one of my faves! Just finished listening to “Runaround Sue” for the third time...thanks to you! The last time I saw him perform, he was in great form!

          Love 💖 your comment!
          I guess we’re now officially the ...
          “blister ‘n broety” duo!
          I like that!

          This song was just chosen after reading goldfinch post today!
          Did make me giggle....

          • Laura

            Ah, yes!
            I thought it was just a coincidence and that you just liked the name Sue!😉
            Personally, I like Dion’s songs! I lived in his neighborhood at a young age! When my aunt visits the church he and his family attended, it makes me think of him...and of course, there’s always the Italian connection!😊

              There's love in them there words mister. And lots of it.
              Difficult times of disturbed nights, bleary eyed mornings, screaming/wailing baby and extra chores can cloud the love between two people.
              But those quiet together times are still there to share the glow of a successful loving pairing.

              You lucky people.

              • Poetic Dan

                Wow just when I think You can't get any better, you have such a way with words. I swear if I wasn't so madly in love, I'd be writing you a verse.... Ha ha sorry couldn't help it!

                Always appreciated good sir!

                  Very nice work, touching to a fault. I found my world too and it just happens to be the piano and we've had a baby grand ... Super job. Joe
