Hard Concepts

by Joan Serratelli

Is it a hard concept
for you to realize
that I love you?

Is it really so hard
for you to accept
that I care?

It would be nice
just once in a while
to know that you are there

Why fate threw us together
I don't think
I'll ever know

Sometimes I don't even
think I know
who you are
or what you do to me

You make me laugh
you make me cry
you make me feel alive

you make me smile
you make me think
you make me better
than I thought
I ever could be

you also make me crazy
you also make me mad
but without you
I'd be a different person
than the one who I've become

Hi Joan. Maybe we all need one of these in our own "documents"! Thanks for posting it.

Love really is fascinating, isn't it! This is well written. I like the questioning at the beginning, and I think the lines that begin with "you make me" are very affective.

A finely written 'document,' Joan. It says it all. You've described a life partner in a way you'd never find on a Hallmark Card ... but also in a way that is creatively true ... from the good to the not so good. Yes, that's how it is and how it should be. Somehow, you kinda merge with the other person at some point and don't even realize when or how it happened. Thanks for the read. I enjoyed it immensely. :)

Sometimes we forget that all our relationships are pretty much as you described. At least mine is. Thank you for reminding me.
