Just Kiss Him!


When you meet a fella, new, and that guy seems the best to you—
In your hunt,
You plan your kiss ‘tween you and he, considered by society—
Important.

Imagining where it will be, in thickest grove, or lone prairie—
Amazing.
When first your dewy lips will lock, and your frame tremble with the shock—
Heart’s blazing.

But though you plan beyond all doubt, sometimes it simply won’t work out—
It happens.
Just when you expect it least, you stumble onto your ‘love feast’—
Caught nappin’.

And thus we come to my own tale, of kisses planned and what prevailed—
I’ll tell you.
That what you plan won’t always be, sometimes it’s different, you’ll agree—
A boo-boo.

Our first kiss would be someplace nice, in fragrant fields or paradise—
‘Twas my plan.
Instead it was in feedlot there, with shoes in poop and bugs in hair—
Kissed my man.

The moonlight wasn’t o’er us shed, we’d mercury-vapour light instead—
It caught us.
I looked into his hazel eyes, it probably is no surprise,
They got us.

But still he stayed and our love grew, we’ve grown from us to thirty-two—
So listen . . .
And though a plan is what you’ve got, please know it really matters not—
Just kiss him!

 P.S. Husby's birthday is July 11th. Coincidence? I think not!



Each month we have a topic new, from Karen to us, then to you,
Employ it!
And now go read what others wrote, each I'll happily promote,
Enjoy it!

  9. So true! My first kiss was in a parking lot. Probably not most romantic, but it was the BEST. EVER.
