The gifts given without occasion
given in love not for show or persuasion
the kind that leave a smile on my heart.
The words spoken in the evening late
of care and love and how we were fate
the kind that live on within my soul.
The touch offered without any cause
leaving warmth where it stopped to pause
the kind that quietly my spirit whole.
The pun lighthearted and off the cuff
knowing that if I had only you it is enough
the kind that brings a smile to light my face
The love to me you’ve fully given
reminding me it is in your care I am living
the kind of man you are making me complete.
