Adam Thomas Beatty

by Samantha Beatty
inspired by Karen Holbrook’s demo-lesson and Sandra Cisnero’s “Abuelito Who

Adam who loves fiercely
And expects nothing in return
Who is a tender kiss on my forehead
Whose green eyes can see straight into my soul
Who is lips that meld perfectly into mine
Is natural romance that flows daily
Who calls me beautiful every morning
Who is freckled shoulders
Who can carry the weight of the world with dignity
Is full of hard work and determination
Whose arms are sturdy and offer solace in an embrace
Is the hand that holds mine as we fall asleep
Who is a strong and steady heartbeat
Lulling me to sleep each night
Adam who is fiercely loved
Deserves everything in return
