Tell MeTell MeTell Me by AngelofGod87
At first glance, contradictions,
Rough and tumble
I knew I had spotted trouble,
Opposites attract, or so they say
So my heart fled and flitted
While smiles and laughter showed,
I had no clue what was awaiting,
When revealed the man inside,
It's true what they say,
Country has it's own way.
Your embrace, comfort and strength,
Your laugh brings forth my smiles,
Could you tell me why I love you,
would you show me how and why?
At a glance all seems so fleeting,
Every breath held, wondering.
Opposites attract they say,
But then, tell me why I love you so?

A month?"had delegated tasks to everyone in the family. Richard was assigned floral decorations. His father saw to the coffin while mother picked the church and called the relatives.
Richard was glad he only got flower duty. Coming home from college for the week, he remembers the pace of mother's phone calls. From her bedroom, it would be silent for a minute or two, then tears, occasional nose blowing, then silence again. Mother got better after she made it through her side of the family. When Richard finally decided on a wreath of chrysanthemums (truth, honesty) with highlights of
