WATCHING YOU LOVE ME

There is a beauty in seeing ice thaw
…fresh from a hardworking freezer
That’s how I feel
Watching you love me

II
Your charm might be in you walking through the rain
Even in your fear of thunders
To get me food I crave

IIb
Your charm may be from your smiles at my words
Even when they’re soft, loud
…or harsh

IIc
Your charm may be in your grinning
When I tease you to please me
Adorable is you leaning your head onto your right shoulder
And flashing that boyish smile

IId
Your charm may be in your anxiety
When my monsters wake
Your solemn composition
Your childlike pleas
And your grateful sighs
…when my angelic part takes charge

IIe
Your charm may be in your unburdening gifts
Coconuts and apples
And fanciful foods
What of a frame which captured my naughty side?
Aren’t you quite the package?

III
Watching your shocks turn into acceptings
Watching as my tantrums renew your resolve
And change your routes from a hard core
…to a softie
Watching as you lean in
…and space out
To accommodate my exploits and needs
With hugs and love and laughs
…and petty disagreements
Marks everything I dreamt of
In my loving world

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
