In a Perfect World

A Perfect World Begins With You

In a perfect world
I would get to spend every moment with you
In a perfect world
I would languish in a decadent love that's true
In a perfect world
there would have been no need for tears
In that perfect world
we wouldn't have gone through trials or fears
In a perfect world 
We would be gifted endless happy years

Or perhaps in a perfect world
Someone else would be more perfect for you
and you would think he was amazing too
For me that perfect world would be truly blue
What would this broken heart ever do?
I don't care about perfection, if I can't spend my life with you.

In this imperfect world
We've had our share of trouble
We haven't lived life in a perfect bubble
Sometimes we trip and stumble
Yet we are blessed many times more than double.
What we have gone through has made us who we are
Fortunately we have both ventured here from afar
You are my life's light, hope and guiding star
So what if life's not perfect, that's much better than okay
I don't wish for it to be any other way
Things happen as they should day by day
We let life unfold as it may
For all things happened to bring you here to me
I'm at the right place where I'm glad to be
For I know being with you has always been my destiny
Therefore I'm beyond sure 
this is my excellent world
Because around perfection 
these arms are curled!

    Wonderful that you have this perspective. Somehow, seeing through and prevailing over the nonsense serves us well, yet I it's hard for me that I so seldom understand. So I try to keep my face into the wind, that I'm not turned aside and completely blown away.

    As per usual your poem is outstanding and moving at the same time. My perfect world is much different than yours, I tackle the world. It has been a long time Richard.

    Love shines through in this write Richard. When a man finds perfection in their partner that's like a winning lottery ticket. Congratulations my friend on your partner and your write.

    Hello, Richard, I gave you the biggest compliment to another soup member over the phone yesterday. I was not wrong, every line is perfect. If I ever was to learn from anyone on this site it would definitely be you and Sir Paul C..... The ending wraps up perfectly. Love LINDA

    this is absolutely fantastic. A HIGH SEVEN on Soup standards. You display wonderful wisdom when you write like this, Richard. Nothing perfect can be real!

    Thanks for saying that, Richard. Means a lot. The Soup is easier to keep up with, when I post in trickles instead of rivers! Lol.

    This kinda brought a tear to my eye, with this soft, sweet and flowing expression of love. Sometimes you read a poem, and its like all the lines just fit so well, this is one of those poem! I think also when you feel the truth of the words, that they are truly heartfelt, well even better!

    You have a beautiful outlook on life, Richard. I hope you know that. The light shines all the greater when compared to the spots of darkness, and the shadows. If everything were light all the time ... would you know it if you saw it? Love this one!

    A perfect write about a perfect world...

    In a perfect world we wouldn't have to do anything but to be for all would have been in their place! The problem, as you so clearly state, what we do in an imperfect world as ours is and you my friend so sensibly give the answer! Excellent provoking writing, my friend, Richard! Hope all is fine over there!
