I never told you how I love the way
you smile, and sleepy turn your head to me
weekend mornings when I hold you close
my arms around you keep you next to me.
Bold affection makes you blush and grin.
Strong innocence and sweetness took me so.
Abide in you, though we have been through times
lesser women would have lost it long ago.
Although the great things you've done count for much
and great things I've been given, it is true,
a million tiny bits of love like these
make up the bonds that hold me fast to you.
