A Poem For Katie (puns included)

Hey everyone. I write a lot on here about my late fiance, Valerie. As some of you know, she passed away 3 years ago last month. I’m not going to talk about that today. I’m going to talk about Katie.

For the past 9 months, I’ve been dating a wonderful woman that I love very much. I never thought that I would fall in love again, but holy crap, I did.

I’m not much of a poet, but I took a shot at writing a poem for her for Valentine’s Day (spoiler: she liked it).

To break up the melodramatic crap, I’m adding dogs telling terrible jokes. Enjoy.

Funny Like That

For Katie, on Valentine’s Day, 2016

Love is funny,

When I looked,

It slipped away.

And then it found me.

And I wasn’t looking.

And I wasn’t thinking,


That I would find love again.

I didn’t.

It found me.

You found me.


And I was in the dark.

And you lit a candle.

And I could see.

That love is funny.


And love is beautiful.

And love is a gift.

And no gift can match,

The love you give me.

Love is funny.

Like that.


Katie has yet to break up with me, even though I drop bad puns like this all the time. It was meant to be 😉
