You Ought to Know

Times of Your Life

What does best means to you?
Is it something that tickles your fancy?
A thing of beauty?
Or a head-turner that drives you crazy?

What does precious means to you?
Is it a hefty sum of money?
A mansion at Hamptons maybe?
Or a Bentley?

What does forever means to you?
Is it a career that assures your stability?
A recognition that validates your competency?
Or an accolade that brings you to the heights of ecstasy?
What does happiness means to you?

I wish I know,
so I won’t see you hurting this way. . .

But if you really want to go,
I think you ought to know:



What best means to me,
are “the laughter and tears”
we shed.

What precious means to me,
is the love
you have given me.

What forever means to me,
is this love
I have for you.

And what happiness means to me,
is you.


For the best times of my life
are all these moments
I spend with you;
and, loving only you.

  1. Hi there Aina, wordpress seems to get running faster.
    Anyways this was a beautiful ode to your husband or boyfriend I suppose. Or whoever you wrote it too, the key word LOVE brings us happiness. Very true and very well written.
