Little Ole Sentimental Me - Poem by David Harris

Some people call me sentimental,
they might be right in saying that.
I am a big softie at heart.
I get choked when I hear sad stories,
and when someone has found someone
they lost touch with years ago.
Don’t ask me why it happens,
because I couldn’t honestly tell you why.
I am supposed to be a macho man,
but some things can melt this heart of stone.
Especially when it comes to animals,
they can wrap me around their tiny paw,
and there is nothing I can do.
They sit and stare at me,
with big sad looking eyes,
and I am putty in their paw.
They know it and play on it,
because I am a big softie,
little ole sentimental me.

    There is nothing wrong with showing emotion my friend, better to have a gentle heart than no heart at all... (Report) Reply

    Me, I cry watching the Jeremy Kyle show when all comes good, at sentimental or romantic movies, on seeing newborn babies, oh hell, pass the kleenex! (If Ted sees this I know he'll say something rude mind you) . And we know that of you D, all those who have had the great pleasure of meeting you! A big softy in a tall, charismatic shell. t x (Report) Reply

    I used to have a German Shorthair that would lay his chin on my knee and look at me with those 'Michael Jordan' eyes, and I couldn't resist him. He looked so sad. I cried when we put him down from old age - it was too painful to watch him hobble around with arthritis and then he just wasted away - it was horrible! This really got the tears flowing - thanks alot, Dave! JK!
