The List I’d Suggest, Son

Value someone who is smart
Strive to be that way, as well…

Value someone who is smart
Strive to be that way, as well;
Look for a good sense of humor
Life without laughter’s fair hell

You want someone independent
Each of you a person whole;
Someone strong, as life’s hard lessons
On the weak can take their toll

Finally, someone with passion
For their family – friends – desires;
And who wants someone who also
To these same five things aspires

I have not mentioned appearance
This might come as some surprise;
But the images around us
Rarely are much more than lies

If you find someone who’s smart and
Funny, independent, strong,
Full of passion, then be worthy:
Love there
Likely
Won’t
Go wrong

    1. Thank you. My son’s comment when we actually had this conversation: “Dad, you might have found the last one like that.”
