“None of the Above”

I found this poem in my archives that I wrote on June 26th, 2016 and I would like to share it with you.

I have a pretty long list
Of all the things I love
I can do any of them with you
Or, if you prefer, none of the above.

Family, friends, writing music, singing songs
Winter walks, coming home, sky full of stars.
Solving problems, helping strangers, reading a book
Practicing yoga, sometimes riding my bike too long.

Learning something new, teaching what I’ve learned
Laughing at jokes, sharing good food, colorful sunsets
Writing on my blog, sharing a story, liking a post
Being silly, going for a swim, getting praise that I earned.

With you I can do anything
And add it to the list of things I love
With you I can do anything
Or, if you prefer, none of the above.

Cuddle and watch a movie, listening to you breathe at night
Playing games no matter who wins, a weekend unplugged
Hearing from co-workers, dancing like a fool, laying in the snow
There are so many other things I’ve added to my list tonight.

With you I can do anything
And add it to the list of things I love
With you I can do anything
Or, if you prefer, none of the above.

    MidMike, I love your list!! I’ve been reading your posts I bet since 2016 or least since I stated blogging about that time. I especially like the “writing for my blog, cause often one feels or questions why we do. Thank you, your post of 2016 still reads true as when I first started reading and following you😊👍

      Ahhhhhh, and we also question who even reads our posts. Who cares?
      That is not why we write music or paint or sing. But I truly thank you and those that are willing to share their experiences with strangers.
      And then we learn of those special connections that bind us together even in our distances.
      You have made our worth while!

    Always interesting to read our own old work, I hope you enjoyed reading it as I did. It feels like a very candid tune.
