Tender Recipe

Touch her gently as she passes.

You don't have to catch her eye.

Tell her that you love her.

You don't need a reason why.

Tell her she's the rainbow

that paints your cloudy skies...

filling your days with beauty

and easing life's goodbyes.

Warm her with a snuggle

on those cold, wet, windy nights.

Share with her your struggles

and those petty work site fights.

Listen to her troubles,

but don't rush to set them right.

Just let her vent her feelings...

sharing throughout the night.

Do not seek deep answers

to vague questions in the sand.

Just reach across the chasm

and gently squeeze her waiting hand.
