Love is one grand act.
It would be untrue to say that
Love is in the small gestures.
I can say for sure
When you brush my hair
Untangling my matted worries
When you hug me so I feel secure,
I simply could not care.
With the big acts to show the world,
How proud you are to be seen with me.
You seem to just know me.
And when you make me tea,
The longer it seeps
The stronger my love feels,
If only I cared.
And taking yourself seriously;
It’s just what I love about you.
I feel sappy writing a love poem but
We work well together and
Because your weaknesses are my strengths
I am simply assured.
That my eyes light up when I see you,
The way we laugh and talk the same or
You profess things to me in your sleep,
Muffled through your snores;
I just hope you know
That’s not what I think about.
What you do for me Feb. 14
It is important,
Because I could not say
Who needs one day
When love is in the little things every day,
Note: now read it from bottom to top
