To the ones who love…

Recently, I stumbled upon this article about a boyfriend who wrote 365 love notes and put them in a mason jar which he gifted to his girlfriend to read, one a day… (http://www.boredpanda.com/love-notes-365-day-jar-gift/) A lot of folks out there found it cheesy and sappy…. Call me ol’ fashioned, but I was blown by such a gesture… ESPECIALLY since they had been dating for EIGHT years and after EIGHT years, you know the puppy-love has run its course and that this is the real thing… So here’s a little ode to them….

“You will know that the puppy love days,
Go by in a foggy haze,
But if you ever earn my love,
Warmth and respect shall follow in place.

You know the initial push and pressure,
Gifts start becoming affection’s measure,
But if you ever earn my love,
You’ll know that THAT’s the only treasure.

You know in time gestures are cheesy,
Sticky note ‘I LUV YOU’s make you queasy,
But if you ever earn my love,
You’ll know life flows easy-breezy.

There are days that will be a challenge,
And fights and patch-ups we have to manage,
But if you ever earn my love,
Wounded hearts find the perfect bandage.

And when you’re away, I will know,
I will not pine in angst and woe,
For now that you have earned my love,
You’ll forever be my guiding light and glow…”
