Breast Cancer Awareness

This is a short piece for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I lost a close friend very talented, very young to breast cancer. I also lost my cousin recently to the same disease. I hate that ugly "C" word. I just wrote this story to highlight the relationship North American men have with women's breasts. I hope it is taken in the spirit that it is written. 


I don't have to try not to look at a woman's cleavage, I love looking into their eyes. I love listening to them talk. I enjoy listening to a woman's point of view. It enlightens me. It gives me views of the world that I would otherwise miss. I appreciate their nurturing nature. I like how soft they feel. Hold a woman's hand? That is sure to send shivers up my spine. Lock lips? If that is not what heaven feels like send me else I'll take my chances there. There is nothing like that first kiss. I can walk all day with her as if it were a minute in time. I float on air. I am a romantic. I adore women. I love the way they walk the way they smell. Hugging or spooning it's all good. The opposite sex is very special. It is time we listened more and appreciated more. Women can lead us to the proverbial Promised Land. No! I'm kidding. I like staring at their ****.

Maurice, I was following along with your beautiful poem thinking who is he fooling. I kept reading and thought, maybe this guy is for real, wow.. one of a kind. I'm impressed, speechless in fact. ...then I read your last three lines. I fell on the floor laughing so hard. I think I just wet myself. Dude, you had me!

You can copy and post it there if you like. Anything you want to do. You can also remove the ending. Whatever? There is nothing I would not do for you Cas. I will be posting your link again soon. Having a long background in marketing I know people stop seeing a post that is always there. So feel assured I will always support your blog.

No, nothing to take lightly but sometimes we have to laugh to cope with the worst of life.
