There is much to be said for living alone, I have control of the remote, the TV, and the phone. I can do what I want, whenever I please, And change my mind instantly, with consummate ease.
But there are drawbacks, of course, to this idyllic state, Packing and stowing the shopping is something I hate. Then there’s changing a lightbulb, mending a fuse, Having no-one to talk to, and enthuse at my news.
Sharing jokes, tasty meals, and countryside drives. Taking the rubbish out when bin-day arrives. But above all there’s one thing I’d be delighted to say, “I love you, and I’ll love you always, come what may”.
Then I thought, ‘there is someone I know, and who’s near, Who is waiting silently, patiently, longing to hear Those words, said with feeling, with tenderness and care. I’ll just go to my mirror, and get ready to share’.
As she looked into my eyes, and started to smile, I felt my heart melting more and more, all the while. We gazed and gazed, getting used to the sight Of features relaxing, and eyes shining bright.
“I love you” I told her, and was so happy to find She said “I love you” right back, she’s so open and kind. Oh how my heart sang, as we both laughed with glee. What a find to discover that my best friend is me!
