Close enough to whisper into her ear
Orlando still hesitated. He worried how she would react
Never had he been this close to her
To think how long it had taken to plan this out
And now this was his time. He decided to reach out
Crashing to the ground, he bounced his head off the concrete as he was tackled
To think he had almost licked Taylor Swift!
This is an old one, but still rings true to me each year. I think this is the only poem on my site I have reposted. Now I do it for the second time. I hope you enjoy. The original title was “My Favorite Superhero”.
Mortal though she may be
Obviously she has super powers
The ability to absorb pain and suffering with a single kiss
Hearing so acute that she doesn’t miss a whisper from a mile away
Eyesight so keen that she can actually see through and around solid objects
Remember that your mom is a superhero!
