Today is Valentine’s Day so here’s a little poem to celebrate it.
Not everybody is naturally romantic. yet, relationships can be loving and fulfilling regardless of that fact. Don’t confuse romance with real love.
Despite not being particularly romantic in the way of bringing flowers etc,. my husband of 54 years shows his love in a million other ways. He’s always here, calls me his best friend, keeps me supplied with coffee, tea, breakfast, and lunch, looks after the garden, and considers me in everything he does. In return, I keep the house and all the gadgets in it clean, wash and iron our clothes, make our evening meal, and also help out in the garden. That’s the type of love I wouldn’t swap for anything.
What is your ideal type of love? Describe it in a comment below.
