Loving you in review

I was taught how to love but not how to stop.

I was taught how to dream but only round the clock. 

I was taught how to eat but not how to be petite. 

I was taught manners but not the standards.

I was taught how to speak but to not be unique.

I was taught how to learn but not how to discern.

I was taught to make friends but not how to contend.

I was taught how to listen but to not reminisce in.

I was taught to make memories but to not reverie. 

I was taught to respect but not to genuflect.

So when i found you and chose to pursue i should have eschewed because in review

nothing prepared me for loving you.

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
