I could write down
all the wonderful things about you,
but then I would need
a piece of paper three miles long.
So I hope this will do:
I love you just the way you are
keep being you.


The author's comments:
I wrote this during my English Mid-Term (inspiration strikes at the strangest times, eh?). It is partially inspired by Billy Collin's poem "Vade Mecum" and Elton John's song "Your Song".

I like it. Straight forward, no gushy nonsense, and despite that, it conveys the emotion well.

 

Well done.

Jandee I think this is amazingly beautiful. It doesn't have to rhyme or have a special meaning it just makes sense and I love it. Great job (5/5)

Oh yay! I am thrilled you like this! I think you should look up the poem it was partially inspired by "Vade Mecum" by Billy Collin's. It's a lovely, short poem.

I like this, short and sweet. :) It's very simple, but it has a whole lot of meaning. As short as this is, it actually works out to be a lovely poem. Good job!

Lol. I actually wrote [vandalized] this on a desk at school because I was hoping someone would see it and it would make them smile.

This is definitely my favorite of yours!!! It's exactly how I feel about my boyfriend. And I can relate to finding inspiration at weird times haha, my last inspiration came in the middle of Shrek 4.

This is a really sweet poem. I love it! Short and to the point. And I know what you are talking about, I had the inspiration for my latest poem while playing Hedghog Launch... I know, a little weird, but I was bored.
