I See You, My Man

With my short-sighted eyes

Those black-rimmed glasses

Oh, how I adore you more

When you put them on.

I wish contact lenses

Were never invented (throw them away!)

For you look so much more dignified,



With glasses on.

Call me shallow

Call me short-sighted (but oh, I am)

But I want to see you

The way I see myself.

And when I see you

Through the lens that I don

My heart flutters.

Skips a beat, even.

Oh, my man.

Soon, the world will know you more

Than they already do

But I'll be content

To know that you're forever mine (is there such a thing?)

And that it's into the warm embrace

Of my arms

That you will return to

Every night.

Here's hoping.

    The way you convey your affection and desire for your partner's appearance with glasses is endearing and heartfelt. The yearning to see your loved one through your own perspective is relatable, and it adds a personal touch to the poem. The line about being content with your eternal connection is touching. Wonderful, and have a nice day!

    So interesting a poem. But the glasses frame that hang the lens will always support when the need arise to see that which she behold. Oh my glasses how wonderful you are to give more light to my day. Lovely you keep it up
