Truly, Madly, Deeply - Poem by LeeAnn R. Jones

I saw at first glance
A shy, quiet boy
Not outspoken or argumentative
A slight smile and a small hint of joy

At first there were hardly any words
Only ones I could barely hear
He talked so softly
As if always whispering in my ear

He was a puzzle to me
One I was determined to figure out
But in order for this to happen
His background is what I needed to learn about

Casual conversations
Are what I tried to start
But my job as his boss made it difficult
As I was always telling him to push in more carts

The more I got him to talk to me
The more we started to flirt
And then I began to realize
I was over the last guy and all the hurt

I was falling for him
Something I didn’t really expect to do
The managers preached their warnings
“The union will protect him not you”

But here we are now
Ten months later
He is such a great boyfriend
I couldn’t have asked for anything greater

He makes me laugh
Putting a huge smile across my face
And he holds my hand in public
Walking side-by-side with such grace

When he holds me in his arms
The rest of the world seems to disappear
And we can sit and talk
As if we’ve known each other for years

But my most favorite part
And what gives me complete bliss
Is when we stand and look into each other’s eyes
Then lean in for a kiss

His lips so soft against mine
Is the best thing I’ve ever felt
And when he whispers “I Love You” into my ear
My heart completely melts

The he I have been referring to
Is Zachary Ryan Clos
And to anyone who has dated him in the past or wishes to in the future,
Sorry ladies he’s mine now, sorry for your loss

Zack I want you know
That any decisions you make
I am beside you one-hundred percent
No matter what’s at stake

You may think I’m crazy
And I’ll agree that it’s true
Because you stole my heart
And I’m truly, madly, and deeply in love with you
