Hour 16  (Marathon Prompt – write a poem about love without using the word love)


He trusts me, even when he fears for my well being

He compliments me, even when the dinner ends up in the trash or the new hair cut is just a little “iffy”

He helps me, even when he knows I should do it on my own and it means more work for him

He supports me when life gets in the way

He challenges me, knowing it might make me mad, but he knows I need that challenge

He gets me, even when he doesn’t fully understand and I would guess that is quite often

He is there for me in every way imaginable…..every hour, every day without fail, forever.  How could someone care so much, so deeply?

My hope is that he feels the same about me.
