The end of the year always makes me...


Grateful

For the flowers,
the steak dinner,
the walk home,
the warm hug,
and the mmm-so-perfect kiss.

Thank you
for the sly smile,
the grey hair,
the neck kisses,
and the shivers down my spine.

For that look on your face when I undress,
for taking your own sweet time with my bra,
for trying something new,
for running out of condoms,
for twisting and turning,
for cute snores.

For waking up
and swapping dream stories,
for morning sex,
for feeding me breakfast,
and making my bed.

Thank you
for making my computer work so much faster.
You don't know
how much of a relief it is!
You were so patient through it all.

Thank you for the black cable, for calling me Purple Haze,
for your yellow boxers,
for washing your hands nicely with soap,
for feeding me dosa,
for rinsing out the chai mugs, for calling your mom before your meeting.

Thank you
for smiling at me
when I do my silly dance!

I loved every bit of having you here.
Come again soon! ❤️

As I read this, I realized I wanted to BE you, to feel those feelings, to experience what you were experiencing.

This is very vivid writing! You truly are sharing yourself with words.

Gratefully,
