TITLE: Little Gifts

I awoke each day to find it on the nightstand

or sometimes on the kitchen table.

One time I opened the car and there it was.

I really thought he forgot that time.

My days were fresh and sweet and I didnít

have any cares. My time was spent with waiting

arms and the longing to see his face, that was exciting

young love, full of hunger, full dreams.

When that little gift was the most important thing.

Now the days have passed into weeks and weeks

into months and months into years.

and though the anticipation of each moment is not

quit the same my love is deeper and stronger with a

longing to still see his face. To me the way he looks

at me when ever I walk in the room, or when I get a

new outfit for that special occasion thatís what I

call romance, or like the time he came home with

these dainty little wild flowers he found while walking

in the woods. I look forward to each day now with

a new joy and a new memory of all the little things

that have a special place in my heart.

I awake to the morning sun just happy

to see him the one I love.

Just like the little gift on the night stand.

A wonderful story of enduring love and romance. I would really like to know what the gift was. I was left a little empty not knowing. I assume it was a love note, but would have rather known for sure. The writing is very good, however. And it ran along smoothly.

I too would like to know what's on the nightstand. This was very well-written. One spelling error though I think quit is suppose to be quite? Enjoyed reading this piece.

I liked this simple expression of love, and its gratitude for the "little gifts" love brings. Nice work.
