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!
