When I Say I Love You…

I will tell you I love you in the moments I mean it most,
When the sun has set
And you are draped in darkness
And distractions cease to be.

I love you.

When you are just waking up,
Pillow wrinkles on your face,
Sun peeking through the curtains unto your skin,
Hair going in a million different ways.

I love you.

When you are cooking your favorite meal,
And you pour yourself some wine,
You use the finest ingredients,
And take your time when you arrange your plate.

I love you.

When you are sick and want to stay in bed,
I will make you a caldo,
I will wrap you in blankets,
And I will even buy some 7up
Just in case.

I love you.

When you are in the shower,
You are gasping for air
As the water runs down your face,
Straight to your torso,
O, my, how tempting it is to –

I love you.

When everyone else has left,
And you are all that remains,
All I have is you,
You carry me throughout the day,
My spirit is thankful for you.

Body, I love you.
