Her Only Bad Habit Is Me - Poem by David Harris

We walk hand in hand
through our world today.
We will walk that way forever,
if bad habits don’t get in the way.
Now she has only one bad habit,
and that habit is me.

If I do something wrong,
she does not see my failing there.
She would rather go on loving,
the man she chose to care.
Now my bad habit shine like a beckon,
but she does not really care.

So though we wander with love,
through to the sunset somewhere.
I think of how lucky I am,
with everything I see.
So glad she has only one bad habit,
and that habit is me.

    i would simply
    like to say that
    if you are her
    only bad habit
    than you've got it wrong,
    and she has none.
    for what could be
    so very wrong
    about one whose words are always strong? ? ?
    and lest one forget
    so filled with love....

    Love is not so much blind
    But sees the goodness behind
    Our wives do so much display
    The wonder of true love at play.

    Very nicely expressed David
