I thought….

I thought I wanted him to give me flowers for special occasions,

I know I need the hugs he gives me every day.

I thought I wanted him to take me to candle-light dinners,

I know I need his cooked meals when I am exhausted.

I thought we needed to do everything together,

I know we need our separate hobbies to keep us sane.

I thought I need his support,

I know I need his belief in me.

I thought I needed him to shout out his love for me,

I know I need his love that he shows through his actions.

I wanted him to love me the way I knew,

I know he loves me in his own way and I love him for that!
