Real love (this is not a Valentine's day poem)

Real love isn't a Valentine's poem 

It's a tiny xo on the end of a shopping list 

Real love isn't a dozen scented red roses it's the scent of a good home cooked meal wafting through the air 

It isn't sexy lingerie and steamy nights

Its falling asleep in each others arms on the couch

It isn't spontaneous picnics in picturesque places 

It's photos and bills tacked to the fridge.

It's not surprise trinkets and gifts 

It's that quick check in and adhoc appreciation

It's not lingering kisses walking out the door,

It's that knowing look in each others eyes.

 

But it all sure helps!

Knock knock... if I'm

Knock knock... if I'm intruding on this real life savory love breakfast, just ignore me. If not, throw a robe on come say hello. Sealed.  I'm feeling this little comfort zone you got going on here, Smoothie. It's sweet AND savory. Good for you and your readers

In 2020

In 2020 true love doesn't seem to exist. Love is (in my humble view) just being together..... What's a diamond necklace to a soulful blank look

Real Love

Cooking her breakfast, serving it in bed and washing the dishes afterwards.

Ha ha! Real love is some

Ha ha! 

Real love is someone cooks breakfast the other cleans up! 


Don't let any one shake your dream stars from your eyes, lest your soul Come away with them! -SS

real love can be taking turns

real love can be taking turns cooking and doing the dishes so each one gets a few days off.

I like that George. It's not

I like that George. It's not really a treat if you have to wash dishes after. Relaxing after a yummy breakfast is far better! Cheerss
