This piece was written for a Christmas card for my husband. At the time were in the very depths of doing long distance, and so every minute of our time together was worth its weight in gold. I wanted to convey to him that I appreciated him and accepted him as he is, in every moment, because that’s what love is all about.
Love you when naughty, love you when nice.
Love when you’re angry and I pay the price.
Love when you’re cuddly, but also when tired.
Love when the sports get you all fired.
Love when you’re caring, when you get me flowers.
Love when we’re spending the shortest of hours.
Love every challenge, love the knot knowing.
Love that I’m with you – because you’re worth loving.
Love you forever, beyond any reason.
Give you my heartbeat, because ‘tis the season.
