It’s hard to say what makes me feel loved.
It’s hard for me to say it succinctly that is, but I’ll try.
Holding hands – no matter who’s looking.
Stolen flowers* – and a card in the mail.
Little emoji hearts – little emoji hearts with stars.
Those two words – Thank you.
The other two words – I’ll help.
The children we had – and those we didn’t.
Sugar in my coffee – honey in my tea.
A glass of wine – and a piece of your chocolate.
That smirk on your face – it says it all.
A kiss on the cheek – and a hug from the heart.
Two little words – always at the bottom of handwritten notes:
It’s all I need to shine, or glitter, or glow brightly.

gathering enough flowers to make a (small) bouquet,
and left them at my front door.
