Loving a Good Man ( Appreciating…)

Love him when he’s right,
Love him when he’s wrong…
For all that he does right,

appreciate and be his peace..
For all that he does wrong,
tolerate and forgive him for

it’s his price for being Human

and he’ll make mistakes.

Love him when he’s broke and broken-
Give him the best fix through

the cold and support him.
It’s in moments like this

that you build better days and joys

Love him as his woman.

He’ll probably forget your Birthday

a few times he might not compliment you,

do all the cheesy chivalrous stunts you’d wish for-

but he comes home to you every day

and pays the bills, Respect him.

When you love a good man right,

all comes with the bitter-sweet

a tough love with an endurance, we call security.
A Security that builds over the years and

becomes sustainable for the children and family.

He isn’t a movie star, celebrity nor

does he come with all that ice…

He’s only a responsible caring man,

doing the best for his woman and children,

Woman, Recognize this hue.

He isn’t perfect and he can’t read your mind.

He works all day, sometimes taking the hustles

and blows through the streets

through the blistering cold, rainy nights to get to you-

a few struggles and sacrifices he never mentions

because he’s a good man.

As he gets home today from work,

welcome him with a smile and kiss –

ask how his day has been

tell him that you love him and

you appreciate all he does.

Watch his gaze- see that smile…

that’s the shade of fulfillment and gratitude.
Help him with the bags and run his bath water,
Fix him that dinner on time as he likes it.
A beer and remote to catch the game.
And as you dim the lights and swirl across

in those shades of pink, show your appreciation.

Every day, every day.

Let him know that you got his back always

and you appreciate him for he’s a good man.

I am an African woman and a mother to a precious little angel. I love to use the term "Afro-floetic Queen" mostly to describe my poetry and my roots. I love poetry...art, soul music and inspirational bits of knowledge to offer advice and counseling to those who need it. I can be very witty, straight forward but fun. Ha. ha... A colorful perception of the world - expressed in my poetry. I want to inspire people with my Poetry...give them hope, while also advising them. Life is a learning process and i am happy when one of my pieces directly affects or inspires one of my readers. Let's take a detour around experience, and let me fill your minds with sweet poetic juices.... Note: Just changed my user name from FloetryC to AfroetryC because the latter is more personal and describes my Spoken Word Poetry better.
