I Cho-Cho-Choose You

Family is family
Tied with red cord
Linking and joining and passing along
Likes and dislikes and familial quirks
Eye color, hair color, height short and tall
Been there forever, always will be
Fate chosen, threads woven, generationally

But you, my dear man,
Are something much more
You are the one I simply adore
In the great words of spiky haired Lisa
Said to Chief Wiggum's Ralphie boy
"I Cho-Cho-Choose You"
And that my dear man
Means I'll choose you and choose you
And choose you again.

This post inspired by the prompt of the day at NaBloPoMo and prompt # 5 at Mama's Losin' It!


  1. I love this! It's so sweet. And I love that a Simpsons reference is a romantic gesture in more homes than just mine!

    1. Thanks! Our other favorite "I love you" line is "The stench would be great," from The Coneheads. When my husband says that, I melt!

  2. I love the Simpsons as love poem inspiration too!

    1. Thanks! In my mind I kept hearing 'fate chooses, but I cho-cho-choose you' and knew I had to write it down!

    1. Thank you! My husband loves The Simpsons, and he was super pleased to have a poem for him that includes them!
