The Keep-Poem


The keep

It seems so unlikely

That anyone would put up with me

For all this time

But you especially

Have made the keep

A home I gladly call mine

And a place I think of even when I sleep

Throughout all my mistakes

And all of our misunderstandings

You still manage to be a friend

And have what it takes

To bring me back from the brink

And be someone who will invariably

Brighten my day

Or at the very least

Put a smile on my frowning face

Your stream

Without a doubt

Is my favorite place to be

And yours

My favorite stream to see

Beautiful feelings, expressed most probably for your life partner.

It’s good to understand, what the other person is doing for you.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful poem!

A sweet serenade to she who inspires. Friendships can keep us going and familiar routine is upkeep for comfort. A good poem. Keep writing.
