A poem by Beverly Stock.

2020 was such a mess,
Honestly, I must confess
My brain is drained, I’m in distress,
I think I need a keeper.
An advertisement is what I need
To invite a few, yet supersede
Those applicants with high degrees.
PhDs can’t be a keeper.
A moderator of life’s stress
That’s what my keeper will do best.
Cooking skills they might invest,
Feel like a guest with a keeper.
Most importantly; a keeper cares,
Keeps no secrets, always shares,
With hope to spare, is always there
Who suggests what to wear? A keeper.
A keeper, it occurs to me,
You’re someone who I always see,
One like you, who likes to be,
A friend to me. It’s you, I see!
You’re a keeper!
Keeper ( a colloquialism) in a relationship means someone worth keeping. When he/she said that you're a keeper, he/she knows that you're the one.
