Love is not the big things

love is not the big things

the one off things

the gold and glitter kind of things

It's not the wine-ing, the dining,

the overall sense of shining.

its is in the little things

the kinda small and insignificant things.


they say the devil is in the details

well I say no love is in the detail

the care and common sense of purpose in the detail

the everyday in the detail

the cup of tea in the morning detail

the kiss goodnight while holding hands going to sleep …detail.


the reach out for connection when I dithering

the picture of our baby when i'm travelling

the home running while i'm hotelling


In the details of my life

this is the big love

Written for my love of 12 years as a Valentines Day gift 2017
