(88) You Made Me Happy - Poem by David S Dennis

When I walked you home that night
The vibe was absolutely right
The sparks were flying left and right
Jesus I was happy

We talked and talked of this and that
Nothing more than vapid chat
I don’t remember what was said
More than words were talking

On and on we went like that
Playing off and bouncing back
So rare a thing to feel like that
You made me happy

Starry eyed and laughing
As we said good night and parted
And I floated helium hearted homeward
God you made me happy

That night when I went to bed
I couldn’t sleep my buzzing head
Was wondering what would happen next
And guess what, I was happy

That was now a month ago
I’ve seen you come I’ve watched you go
I’m wondering what the future holds
And how to make you happy.

I’d shower you with lies and gifts
I’d move the earth if we could live
Together you and me like this
Great God I’m happy.

    David this is a sweet romantic piece with shining eyes. It has effortless rhythmic cadences and a light-hearted bouncy feel - 'I floated helium hearted homeward'. Memories of adolescence methinks.... love, Allie xxxxxxxxxxxxxx (Report)Reply

    A poem to remind lovers of that first joy and why it doesn't have to end (put each other first; happiness ensues) ... The all-encompassing spirit of love lives in this piece (wonderful phrasing throughout, such as 'I've seen you come, I've watched you go') . Thanks for this, Esther: ] (Report)Reply

    Vapid it ain't. Expressive of that first flush it is, inspiringly so. Fine write to which we can all (iof we are lucky) relate - the mark of a good piece. t x (Report)Reply
