With curious eyes like pools of dark chocolate
that make a man want to dive right in,
and nut-brown hair with a tint of red,
it's impossible to get this beauty out of your head.
Her laugh is contagious and lights up a room.
She is gentle and sweet and as stubborn as the Texas weather.
The perfect height for forehead kisses,
she's sure to be the object of your affection forever.
Never before has a passion been so true
as that of this woman who molds young minds.
Her fears and wishes and dreams match yours,
her goals and ambition can open all doors,
and her lighthearted spirit will keep your fates intertwined.
The sense of humor that inhabits her soul
brought you both together.
It's a humor that is dark and brings laughter beyond control,
but can turn around and be light as a feather.
Even her expressions are as adorable as can be,
from the corners of her smile to her pout.
One short conversation with this pearl in the sea
and you will see what I'm talking about.
Even in sickness she will be fierce as the sun
and nothing in the world will stop her.
The object of your desire
becomes your heart's fire
and causes your emotions to stir.
She's cute and she's vulnerable
and she has no filter to show.
An old-school violinist
and a knack for Spanish
are examples of her knowledge that grows.
Dedication to family
and an overall happy demeanor
can prove how loving she can be.
Any tiny flaws
she may think she has
only make her more lovely to you and me.
This woman I speak of exists in the world,
or at least she does in mine.
One should be so lucky as I seem to be
to find someone so divine.
So how will you know when you have found the woman
that has stayed in touch with her inner child?
Be patient and true
and realize that you
will do anything just to make her smile.
This angel with eyes like pools of dark chocolate
and red-tinted nut-brown hair,
is who you have sought,
will never leave your thoughts,
and no one will ever compare.
The rain came today, I welcomed the change
of weather from the heat that dried my soul.
A hard day's work in mud and muck found me
thirsting for replenishment: casserole!
Lunch at a cafe was what I needed
to fill my aching stomach. Broccoli
and cheese with rice and chicken took me back
to work with a brand new ferocity.
My afternoon passed without adventure
and the rain washed away any chance of
safety on the road. I saw a billboard
reminding all travelers of Easter.
So make sure to grab your Easter bonnet
and enjoy the holiday. Um. Sonnet.
Stay classy, and I’ll see you at the next stop.
