If Love Wasn’t Measured In Flowers

“If roses are red,
and violets are blue.
Then some time ago
I gave my heart to you.
But what if our love,
wasn’t measured in flowers?
 Would you measure it in
 seconds, minutes or hours?”

Today is my anniversary with Paul. We’ve been together for 11 years. This year has been particularly difficult for both of us and we’ve had to hold each others hand and just be there through some excruiating times. The thing is … I know these times are not over and they will continue into the new year. But today, today I write a poem for Paul. Just to let him know how much I love him.
