I noticed

Hello all,

it’s been a while,

I’ve been busy,

good busy.

Work, seeing friends,

spending time with,

my lady.

Last weekend, we went,

to see some,

slightly experimental theater,


a walk in old Montreal.

We rode the bus back,

to her place,

I kept grinning,

at least it felt like I was grinning

The next day,

we had an amazing breakfast,


it’s easy with her,



I asked what she would like,

to do and she suggested,

showing me,

where she works,

she mentioned,

there was,

a used bookstore,

right by there.

An Autumn walk,

used bookstore browsing,

being with her,

happy sigh.

We emerged with books,


I said I was famished,

we went to this fantastic,

family style,

Latino place.

The food was scrumptious,

the prices excellent,

a loud,

but, in a good way,


And then she walked me,

to the bus.

As I rode the bus and subway,

back home,

I noticed.

I noticed,

what a perfect,

weekend it was.

I noticed that I was,

chill, relaxed, beaming,

there was no tension,

in my body.


likes me the way,

I am,

doesn’t try and fit me into,

a box,

doesn’t think,

I should think of things,

in another way,

she appreciates me,

as I am.

I have had,

a few good relationships,

in my life,

I have had love in my life,

I am so blessed.

But, lately,

I am so happy.

I noticed.

Be well you all.

Later girls,
