Love is warmth.
Warmth from your heart as it radiates down to me
Warmth on a cold fall night as I am bitten by the shivers
And you heat me, wrapping close around me
Love is kindness you show me every day.
With forethought you ensure all my favorite shows record
You ask about my day, if I’m okay and if I know you love me
Love is forgiveness, shown by a smile from the corners of your mouth
A lighthearted joke and a kiss on the lips
Even when I’m not ready to forgive you
Love is less than perfect and more than expected.
It is smiles and laughs and smacks on the butt
It is extra blankets on the bed when you are too hot and I am too cold
It is drives in the dark to see all the Christmas lights
And daily fires in the fireplace
It is worry and struggles when money is never abundant but always enough
It is hardworking, logical but never bland
Love is a handful of glitter tossed in the air.
Unknowing where it will land but always beautiful to lie under and watch
And sometimes a piece of sparkling glitter gets stuck in Love’s eye
Once out it is realized it was only a speck compared to the beauty we are covered in
Love is true, kind and happy.
Love is forgiving, peaceful and hardworking.
Love is my husband.
