The Little Things She Doesn't Do

The Little Things She Doesn’t do. . It’s not so much the things she does But the things she doesn’t do That always amazes me That would make anyone love her too . For she never questions me For our relationship is built By faith and trust She never pushes me to do anything And never a judge . She never shouts at me or argues As we always talk things through She never thinks about just herself But of us two She rarely does the same thing twice And keeps our relationship fresh and new . She has no sense of greed As long as we can pay the bills And have enough to feed . She doesn’t complain When I leave the toilet seat up yet again Or leave crumbs to tidy up And when I am thirsty She offers me her cup . She never minds when I need my space And never wears a frown But a smile upon her face She never wears makeup But still looks like a dream The house is never dirty Always spotless clean . We are of the same mold The same in so many ways And I love her as much as I first did Sixty five magic years ago Still very much in love But now Old and grey. . Peter Dome©2020.

Since you are single, perhaps this poem is the criteria a perfect woman must meet, in order to qualify as your wife in the future. My question is, as a future husband could you measure up. Been married for over 53 years and can happen.
