I Love Him

I love him
I love him
I love him
That’s all there is the say,
I love him and all the spaces in between,
I love him in moments when I don’t feel good enough,
I love him when he doesn’t see how I could,
I love him when my longing for him becomes overwhelming,
I love him
I love him
I love him
That’s all there is to say,
I love him when my self-doubt stands in my way,
I love him when he reaches across and holds my hand,
I love him when he tells me how wonderful I am,
I love him when he wraps his comforting arms around me,
I love him
I love him
I love him
That’s all there is to say,
I love him when a simple text flashes across my phone,
I love him how my heart beats faster knowing he’s on his way,
I love him when he tells me I am his,
I love him because he is mine.
I love him
I love him
I love him
When he slips past and lands a kiss on my neck,
Or when he notices, I have something on my mind I am not sharing,
I love him
I love him
I love him
When he shows up with something practical for me,
Or when he cleans the snow off my car,
When he makes sure I have food on my plates before he does,
I love him
I love him
I love him
When I just know that my safety and care is paramount,
When he wraps his arms around me and squeezes, it says it all,
He loves me too
He loves me too
He loves me too
