Very thoughtful poem. I enjoyed it.
I grew up without a TV, so the allusions to 'It's a wonderful life' were lost on me. Even so, the beauty of the lessons was not. To be someone else's port in the storm... every storm. A lovely love poem.
Something strange is going on with your entry on my computer. Odd symbols where they shouldn't be. . .

Other than that, I've never watched 'It's a Wonderful Life', but your poem has me wanting to rent it. :)

Oh, I LOVE the title of this, and the metaphor of "I'm ZuZu's petals for you..." Gorgeous!
So beautiful and like evryone else, I'm blown away by those last stanzas. Lovely!
Wow, I really like this. It doesn't hurt that you've incorporated bits of one of my favorite movies (and Jimmy Stewart is my all time actor as well), into this lovely piece.

The last portion is just awesome. Thanks for sharing.
What a lovely poem. I especially like the last stanza.

I love your poetry! I love the images and metaphors. Well written, my fellow free-verser!
