I love you! Just writing that puts a smile on my face. You put a smile on my face. I love you because of your sweetness, your kindness, your tenderness and your thoughtfulness. I love you because are you are my dear friend and loving companion. I love you because I have a longing to be close to you. I love you because you listen to me as I share the small triumphs or struggles of the day. I love you because in moments of friction between us, you hear me out. I love you because you respect me. You honor the man that I am, rather than try to make me into someone I am not. You suffer my imperfections and my shortcomings largely without complaint.
I love you sweetie.
