The Prompt - Gratitude

Gratitude

I may not always say it
But I'm grateful for your love.
You make me feel so good,
And drive the demons away.

I may not always show it
But I'm grateful for your time.
You listen to my madness
And make everything seem fine.

I may not always say it
But I'm grateful for your care.
You make me feel so cosy
When we hold hands as we stroll.

I may not always show it
But I'm grateful you're my friend.
You make me laugh and chuckle
However bad I feel.

I may not always tell you
But I'm grateful you're in my life.
You make my life much richer
I'm so grateful I'm your wife.



Sorry if this is a bit soppy, once I'd started I couldn't stop!

    1. Lots of folk telling me that it's not soppy - must just be me then! I think it's because I don't write emotional, personal stuff very often.
