Doug Baldauf #2: Love Poems

VALENTINE

Because
you came along
to fill my heart
with warmth and joy
I only found before
in summer mornings
I promise not to hassle you
for being hard to figure
difficult to reach
and impossible not to love

 

YOU ASKED ME WHY

For your patience
For your sense of humor
For always being there
For taking me to Hawaii
But most of all
for loving me
a long time now

I ironed all your shirts today
fourteen of them

 

From “Barefoot on Warm Sidewalks” by Doug Baldauf, c. 1975
