Because Sometimes I Forget To Tell You All the Reasons Why

You thank me for dinner even when it's not good
You trust me completely like no one else could
In bed with two dogs, we cuddle together
We share an umbrella when it is bad weather
You follow my blog; you read every poem
With one little look, my true thoughts, you know 'em
When I am stressed, you scratch my back
For making me laugh, you have the knack
You take me on dates to go out to eat
You buy me Twizzlers because you're so sweet
We like the same movies and the same books
In sweats and no make-up, you like my looks
You admit when you're wrong when we have a fight
You tell me you love me every night

I love you.

Oh you LIE, there's no one like that!


Seriously, I smiled all the way through this. Sounds like it's mutual. :-)

It's amazing, innit? After twenty some years I'm still constantly amazed that she puts up with my shenanigans. Just as I do hers.

Sometimes it just works.

OK, you're spying on my marriage :). Honestly, except for the twizzlers it could be exactly the same (he brings me Milk Duds).
