Drifting Contemplations: At Hello (micropoetry)

“You had me at hello” is one of the most famous quotes/lines from the movie Jerry Maguire which happens to be one of my most favourite movies,there are many beautiful lines in the movie,I always use “help me,help you” (mostly I say that to my son) then there is “you complete me”, “I’m a cautionary tale”, “I’m cloaked in failure”, “jump right into my nightmare,the water’s warm”, “I love him for the man he wants to be and for the man he almost is”, “the journey is everything” and of course “show me the money”,I find the movie very inspiring,love the story too…so these two micro poems were inspired by the line “you had me at hello”…
“hello” or “how are you?” are simple greetings but it makes a whole lot of difference and these everyday greetings carry more weight when said by the people we love,isn’t it?
I hope you like these writes…hope you’re doing well and hope your day is beautiful(chuckles).

I said
I hope your day is beautiful…

I wanted to say
I love you beautiful
