This Is How It’s Done

Artist Unknown

It costs nothing to show me you care; 

holding my hand

makes me feel like I belong with you

stroking my face

makes me feel cherished

look into my eyes 

and I feel seen, really seen by you

hug me

and I feel loved

when you smile

I feel warmed by you

when you praise me

it makes me want to do even better

when you run your fingers through my hair

I want to bury my face in your chest

when you tell me you love me

I feel like I’m yours

when you say and do all of the above

you show me how much you really care.

Now that isn’t so hard

is it?

  1. Love should be about empathy above all 😉 I like the way you highlight that in your poem… beautifully penned!… Happy weekend. Sending all my best wishes 😀

  2. Ha! That’s true. I meant “we” as a generalization, but that’s accurate….and not just for men. I was treated that way by a woman I adored. So it swings both ways. Like I said the other day, we all have limits. Can only be treated like crap for so long. I finally had to cut bait. Best choice I could’ve made. 😃
