I like knowing you

This is another poem from “back in the day”, way back, in fact.   I hope you like it.  It’s not the best poem I ever wrote, but the feelings are what were important and I think I caught those.

I like you.
I like knowing you    
    (not biblically.)
I don’t like everything you do,
    you don’t like some things I don’t do.
But I like you, the person, very much.
I like
    your smile
    seeing your look-alike in a TV movie
    your honesty
    knowing you watch me when I’m not looking
    your consideration
    when you’re a little shy
    often when you’re not
    talking with you
    having a beer with you
    kissing you and getting the bruise you gave me
holding you while you sleep on the couch
    during a football game.
You.

    I don’t know why but that poem makes me feel comfortable.

    • Danny, I’m glad. It grew from a feeling of being comfortable with someone so I’m very happy that came through so strongly.

        It is nice when your posts come through as intended. The opposite, as you know, can occur. I wrote one last week and received a lot of nice comments but not one got the main point I was getting at. Perhaps I hid it too well.
