Just As You Are

My Darling…
There are things about you I love that I wouldn’t find attractive in anyone else. Your nose is crooked. You’ve lost most of your hair. You snort when you laugh. Just as you are is the way I love you.

when the
sound of
your partner’s
snoring lulls
you to sleep,
and it acts
as a reminder
that they are
there by
your side.
