Love Poem – Possibly About My Cat
by Chiara De Giorgi
I’ve always known to look for pretty things
Sometimes I catch them with a single glance
Sometimes they just appear out of the blue
But I would never want to miss the chance
To spot one pretty thing when I’m with you.
I lose myself into your lovely eyes
And I forget about the world around
Because of all the pretty things I’ve seen
For me you are the prettiest one, hands down
And I’m the happiest that I’ve ever been.
It’s not that hard to look up at the sky
And recognize how beautiful it is
By day, the sun, the clouds, and all the birds
By night, the moon that shines over the trees
Competes with stars, too elegant for words.
And yet, when I’m with you, I can’t look up
I only hear your voice and feel your heart
It beats with mine, it is a symphony
And it is never right to be apart
The greatest gift for me’s your company.
So let us look at pretty things together
I bet they’ve never looked so nice before
We’re holding hands and it’s spellbinding
The way waves sound when crashing on the shore
Just everything, with you, is more enchanting.
So, to conclude this poem about good things:
I like to spot them when I’m on my own
But what I truly, really love to do
Is do the same, but when I’m not alone:
Watch all the pretty things and be with you.
