Begin with appreciation,
from that gratitude will then flow.
Blend both with lavish attention,
you have to let your Cherished know.
Tell them they’re your one and only.
Show them that you’ll never forget.
Ask them what they’re thinking, and feel,
intimacy you won’t regret.
Give them space to grow in spirit
stay close enough to be a part.
Risk your vulnerability,
completely open up your heart.
