He Said He Thought I Saved Him - Poem by Mary Nagy

The celebration ended
as we dragged ourselves to bed.
My heart is brimming over
with the words that he just said.

We were sleepily talking
as we so often do.
To no suprise he leaned over
and said ''I really love you''.

Of course this is the routine.
We always say ''Goodnight
I love you and sleep well''
but he didn't stop there tonight.

He said he thought I saved him
from what he would have been.
He said he was so thankful
that I found him way back when.

I felt my heart would burst
from hearing such sweet love.
I've often felt that I'm the one
who owed my life above.

Of course I didn't save him.
His soul is way too pure.
The truth is I'm the lucky one
of this I know I'm sure

    I very much like the way you write, Mary; the feeling, the meter, and the rhyme. Ans the stories you tell.

    I'm glad to be back with Poem Hunter.

    Oh for that as one feeling. I think couples save each other, especially ones that love each other as you and your partner obviously do. Sweet little write Mary.

    This is a beautiful piece Mary and has the pace (and meter - ha, ha) that suits the sentiment and words so well. You just will not accept compliments though, will you?

    Deep sentiment made yet more powerful by the 'believability' of the characters portrayed. Every verse offers a heartwarming and touching picture of some kind. Delightful write, Mary. (Report) Reply
