If We Were in Love (poem)

Words of Affirmation

If we were in love,
I would whisper in your ear
things I like about you, Dear:
Words to show I care.

Acts of Service

If we were in love,
I would help you with your chores:
I can organize the drawers
or straighten the chairs.

Gifts

If we were in love,
I would bring you a bouquet –
of flowers to brighten your day
and freshen the air.

Physical Touch

If we were in love,
I would take you by the hand;
Run my fingers through each strand
of your lovely hair.

Quality Time

If we were in love,
I would cancel all my plans.
Put away the pots and pans-
Let’s go out somewhere!

-Wills Osborn (7/27/18)

(I wrote this poem after reading the book on “Love languages.”)
