Little Things

"The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa the bad things don’t always spoil the good things and make them unimportant."
 - Eleventh Doctor

This is my valentine for everyone who adds to my pile of good things. I hope you know how loved you are.

Your scribbler,

Little Things
Love is a secondhand book,
bought just because I thought you’d like it.
It’s a cuppa, piping hot,
delivered in cupped hands with a listening ear.
It’s the ready reply to your 4 a.m. text
that closes the hundred mile gap and says I’m here for you.
It’s the sacred silence when words aren’t needed,
the loop of each stitch in the blanket you knit,
the dishes washed and stacked,
the bed made on that harried morning when you barely had time to eat.
Little things, while sometimes overlooked,
Pile up to make a world of difference.
