Where is love?

It’s in the making of a cup of coffee,
The hanging of some washing,
The stirring of a pot of food,
The reading of a story,
The peck hello and goodbye.
It’s in deep and meaningful conversation,
The handwritten birthday card
Filled with words of gratitude and care.
With a commitment to the future,
To shared struggles and triumphs.
The grand gestures are occasional
And thus surprising and extra special.
It’s these simple things
That say I love you more than anything.
To be appreciated, respected and considered
Is worth more than lavish gifts,
Worth more than empty words.
It’s worth everything
