“I got you a Christmas present.
It’s small, but you’ll love it.”
Looking into my eyes with a huge
smile on your face as I resisted the urge to pull you in for a kiss.
“That’s okay, I prefer small presents anyways, they always have more meaning.”
I kissed your cheek delicately;
Appreciating every second of it,
And appreciating everything that is you.
“You always get me small gifts,”
You’d continued as I pulled you into a hug.
“I wanted to do the same for you.”
I leaned my head on your shoulder
Breathing in your scent;
Only able to stand there and smile because you’d once again
Just melted my heart.
Beautiful, romantic portrayal of love. A gift from a loved one given with love will always be perfect. Just being there is perfect. Love makes even the tiniest breath magical. You captured the essence of love at Christmas perfectly. Best wishes Milly x
