Commonly Unique MAG

By Unknown, Unknown, Unknown


Common interests, common pride

Common joy and pain

Common laughter, common tears cried

Common loss and gain

All this we know, all this we share

We're two of a kind, you might say.

We don't say, "I love you," we don't say, "I care,"

For actions spoke louder this day.

Commonly ostracized, commonly hurt

His arms give me comfort, I give back in kind.

Common meals end with a different dessert ,

My lips he seeks, his lips I find.

Our minds , both sharp and clear as the morning sky

Our hearts share the warmth of the sun.

We hope this will last; but we know, he and I,

That others will find us ere our lives are done.

But for now there's no question

Of this gift from above.

'Tis for our common uniqueness

That we've fallen in love.

Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.

The repetition of words was used wonderfully and tells such a romantic yet underlyingly heartbreaking. Great poem!
