My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

August 20, 2010 “because” My 200th Post :)


because she breathes
I sigh
because she speaks
I hear
because she smiles
I laugh
because she sees
I appear
because she cries
I feel
because she flies
I will
because she lives
I love
because she loves
I live
because she is
I am

    “She” has great power. May you not be disappointed. (tongue in cheek) I agree with the above. I like the repetition.

  4. Aww… and the romantic speaks again! Absolutely awesome, this! The lady must be very very pleased with this dedication.. 🙂
    I can relate to each and every letter in this poem!! Interestingly, when I tell him this, he just smiles at me, shakes his head, and calls me a filmy romantic! 🙂
    But that’s okay I guess.. he is just the same… heheh

    Because he cares
    I dare
    Because he blinks
    I stare
    Because he gives
    I share

    • Kavita, what a wonderful comment! We Romantics, what can we do, except write what’s in our hearts while our counterparts shake their heads in wonder. I know I write sappy, sticky Love poems, but I feel sappy, sticky Love 🙂
      Love the little poem…he is a lucky fellow 🙂

      August 21, 2010 at 1:15 pm

      • hehehe… and sticky, sappy love we’ll always feel. 🙂
        Cheers to that! 🙂

    • Red, you have such a knack for making me feel wonderful about my work…you do indeed get it, and that makes this poet feel good. Thank You for giving me your time and encouragement…I am forever in your debt. 🙂 xxx

  8. My friend, you surely must be bored with me trying to find new ways to say how much I like your poetry. Surely! 😛

    But this one, like so many others, is all kinds of fine. I love the interdependence that I read between the lines of this. This is why us folks seek relationships, because we have an innate need to depend on someone, to know that we matter, and to love that they matter to us. Great read! 🙂

    • Tony, I assure you that I’m never bored to receive kudos from a writer and fellow blogger with the skills you possess, I’m quite proud of the fact that you come here to read, and above that, to enjoy and comment; I’m truly thankful to you for your kindness and support. If I ever get to Trottersville I will look you up and shake your hand, My Friend. Thank You 🙂
