POEM| Because You Love Me

wake me up with breakfast in bed
because you want to feed me

send me roses at work
because you know I love them

buy me a dress
because you think it’ll fit perfectly

book me a spa day
because you think I need it

buy us front row tickets to a concert
because you know the artist is my favorite

call me during the day
because you want to hear my voice

give me a foot rub
because I had a long day

pick up the groceries
because you want to take the burden off me

Do all of this and more
because you love me

Have a loving weekend😉

  2. I have carefully read a lot of your posts, each one, more than once… to write through the journey of life and capture the mind of every reader with you is a quality I admire; every one would have something to relate to! I see a growth pattern and I’m of the conviction that it’s infinite.
    All the best in your journey, can’t wait to read a compilation!
