Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 The Best Of You That Makes Up Me
My shortcomings were always a problem
At least until I came to know you
Today I am a better person for it

You found a diamond in the rough and
polished me, I shine because of you
baby and I'm so thankful

Last night I was pressed to see
myself worth anything and once again
you reminded me and
of dreams yet to be realized
Forgive me

It's extremely hard to stay the course
without my first mate

Hung over on love a good thing
but only if it's you we drink of
Today I thirst again and pound an empty bottle

Cause and effect, your smile my need
It's been awhile, how I miss you

You said my eyes told a story,
Yours my very need, can't see my tomorrows
without them

Faith has become more the word of the day
You the reason to keep it

Today will bring more trials and tribulations
Please hold me again before I do battle
with myself, feeling you makes up the better
part of me, the part I need to hold to
