My Boys

This one has a shoulder
I spend most of my time
resting on when I need it

and this one knows
I have one that is
here whenever he
needs it too and

this one starts
an argument
once a week,
so being one
part of an old
married couple
keeps me on
my toes and

this one pays me
a compliment and
then disappears for days
and then shows up
at my door and
opens his arms wide
and when I fall
into them I feel calmer
than I have in ages and

they all help me to
remember that
not all men are
like that one.

I’ve been spending the last few weeks trying to come up with the right words to say thank you to some of the men in my life who have stepped up, and how, to ensure my faith in humanity didn’t dissipate completely before year end. I’m a lucky girl and they’re all amazing men and I wish them all the best in 2014.
