Poems For Wuan

When Wuan and I started dating about ten years ago, I wrote a number of poems that were dedicated to her. These poems were put up at Geocities and the website aptly titled “Poems for Wuan.” When I got my own domain name and hosting, I parked the website under the subdomain wuan.petertan.com.

A while later, I registered wuan.org and moved the site there. After I presented Wuan with a digital camera, the poems were taken down to make way for her photoblog called “Point and Shoot.” This photoblog is currently undergoing a facelift.

Since then, I have been wondering how I could put these poems back online again. I want the website for these poems to be a labour of love but I have yet to find the inspiration to create one. As such, I have decided to post these poems in this blog first until such a time I get down to building a permanent domain for them.


I can still remember
how you looked
the first time we met
that disarming smile
those gentle eyes
and lips so sweet
if only you are
the last I see
before I sleep
and the first
when I awake
I’d be happier
than pigs in a puddle.

  1. I feel the same way about my wife. I always tell her she has eyes to die for and a smile to get lost in. And I do. Thanks for sharing.
