Tell Me A Story

I’ve been nominated the Perfect Poet Award from Jingle at the Promising Poets’ Parking Lot. Thank you, Ji for the nomination. It is great to be in such good company. I would like to nominate Waystationone and his poem What’s Cookin as a Perfect Poet for Week 25. I hope you will enjoy my entry for this week’s nominations.
Tell me a story
No, tonight it’s your turn.
Then I must study. I have so much to learn.
Read to me, write something, Sing.I don’t care.
Just tell me a story. It’s your turn to share.
I don’t know what to say.
I don’t know where to start.
Just tell me a story
That comes from your heart.
Okay I will try.
Once there was a little girl and her name was me.
She woke up in the morning as happy as could be.
Her favorite was a lady whose name was you.
They loved to be together even when she did grew.
You teach me to read, and to sew and to cook
You take me for walks under elms through a brook.
You let me stay up to count the very last star
You buy me fresh bread, teach me to play the guitar.
Let me love you forever to the end of the day,
The way that you do when I laugh and you play.
You are the one that made me to be me;
That is more important than any degree.

Now where did that come from? You are wise beyond years.
Now get me a tissue to wipe away my tears.
The story is not over I could go on and on.
It is late, but I love each image you have drawn.
I will tell you more tomorrow and every day after
Now it’s my turn to fill your life up with laughter.
I love you.
I love you, too.
For always.
