Happiness (A poem for my wife)

Coral pink lips that only give me truth
Eyes of swirling caramel and chocolate
That only see the best of who I am
A heart that holds all my love and trust
Hands and arms that cradle my child
A temper that’s mild and wild
Brains and conversation a must
Tears that could break the damn
And I wouldn’t ever try to stop it
Squandered time and wasted youth

Mistakes in our past
Eternity ahead
A love that will last
I thee wed

The vows were made
The songs were played
Two people in love
And never deprived of

Happiness.
