by Lawrence J. J. Leonard
A willingness to help,
the aura of a loving spirit,
and your nurturing love
begins it all.
I climb a mole hill and you give it a mountain name.
I finish a few chores and you proclaim me Champion.
I tell you my secrets.
You give great advice.
Dragons rain fire,
the Reaper swings his scythe,
clouds turn dark and thunderous.
A quiet place where I am calm
Some days I am the windshield.
Most days I am the bug.
In every case I am travelling because of you,
and the destination is always worth it.
You like to dance and pull me along.
I like to dance and it makes you laugh.
It’s fun when we listen to music together.
Better a real bad experience with you near
than a SuperVictory while alone.
Your presence is a gift.
It has no equal.
First things first.
I love you more today than yesterday.
almost forgot that one.
