my list

On the palm of my hand
in permanent marker*.
I will write a to-do list
for each and every day.
On it will command, a cuddle,
a kiss - underlined twice.
A back rub, to do the washing up,
to fetch chips in the rain.
I will tick these off daily
for as long as I am with you.

*one that smells like bakewell tarts

That is the best, the very best thing you have written that I have read, it is beautifully written!

I agree with Gretel...I loved it! Esp: chips in the rain ;-)
