Mr. Thoughtful

Heather has a Bachelor's Degree in English from Moravian College and has been freelance writing for more than 12 years.

Dating a man who was more than world

Made him out to be on the inside and out

Dismissed as an argumentative James Dean type

When there was so much to Tennessee Williams version

Of our flesh and blood version of Stanley Kowalski

Except this one respects women and wouldn't harm a fly

Unless it threatened to hurt a loved one

He listens and pays attention to even the most mundane conversations

Offered advice and a shoulder to cry on whenever needed

Provided flowers and affection whenever necessary

A great person to snuggle with on very cold nights

Someone I'll always love waking up next to

No matter what time it is

He will automatically bring a smile to this cynical face

Trying to find a balance to mutually satisfy both our needs

To make this year long journey a longer one

Has been burned in the past by less deserving dates

Disrespected when putting his heart on the line

Decided it was time for the man who gives everything to everyone

To get some of it back tenfold

Splits his time and sleeping energy to help all family and friends

Someone needs to lavish some attention onto him

And I'm the one to do it

Of course, every idea might go off with a few hitches

Still have the tendency to be a touch awkward

It's just my nature to hesitate before I leap off the metaphorical edge

Learning about the nuisances for a good old fashioned romance

Not steeped in tradition; because that's overrated

Telling apart about the distinctions between reality and farce

When it comes to planning romantic moments

Realized that time shouldn't be planned

Just happen naturally and take their course in due time

Excited for what the future holds

The good, the bad, and the downright silly

Bring it on and see what happens.



A little affection goes a long way.

A little affection goes a long way.
