A Thousand Little Things

This Christmas you ask me what I want…

Those can be such empty words.

But what do I want?

I want a thousand little things

That add up to everything.

I want to spend as many seconds

Of every single day

As I can with you.

I want a million tiny future memories

That will be our livelihood-

Our sustenance-

We thrive from

In our old age.

I want our insignificant arguments

Just as much as our best days,

If it means I will grow old

With you.

I want you to know

I cherish you.

I love the life we have built together.

And even if I am sometimes hard to hold

And too often inadequate

In showing how I feel,

I want you to know:

I want our moments.

Our home.

Our love.


I want you.
