I love you.
In the simplest ways.
The way a cat loves to bask in the sun,
And lather itself in bright joy.
The way coffee smells, that is how
I love you, sweet one.
The way my warmest jumper feels slid
Over my naked skin.
The way I curl into comfort is the way
I pour my love into you.
The way a smile talks, its taste on lips,
So ready to emit shine.
The way I hide from the world, it lends
Me to love you deeper.
I love you. Oh in the simplest of ways.
And I will keep loving you, as I find my
Safe spaces within you when my soul quails
From the darkness that hails from sky
And earth, relentless and cruel and nothing
Like your warmth. So soft, and noting
Each of my intricacies intimately. Perfectly.
I love you in the simplest of ways.
And I will simply keep on loving you.
