Everyday Love

the beauty of a simple compliment

used bookstores and poems that make no sense

a piano on the sidewalk

a wall filled with chalk

everything is so much better with you

the first time I saw you I just knew


coffee in the morning

sunsets in the evening

long drives on a summer day

we’ll roll the windows down

and feel the wind in our hair

all I really need is your hand in mine

these little things make life divine


let’s embrace the rainy days with long talks

huge blankets and mismatched socks

dancing around the living room

even if there’s no tune

we’ll just make our own

we’ll eat takeout on the kitchen floor

you’ll always be the one that I adore


everything is better with you

this I know is true

we don’t need fancy things to be happy

this everyday love is what I was made for


and maybe someday 

we’ll be old and gray 

blowing bubbles on the beach

looking back on all the dreams

that once seemed so out of reach


all I really need is your hand in mine

these little things make life divine…


I love music, and sometimes I dabble in writing lyrics. I’m an amatuer obviously, but ya gotta start somewhere. This song is the first I’ve ever finished and the first I’ve ever shared with anyone. It has no melody yet, but maybe someday I’ll get around to composing one, but for now, I guess it’s just a poem.

Honestly, I was hesitant to share this, because it’s a little corny and different than what I’m used to sharing on the internet, but in the spirit of sincerity, why not?  In any relationship, especially long-distance I think it’s important to appreciate the little things and treasure each moment, big or small. That’s what it’s about.

    OH MY GOSH THIS IS THE CUTEST THING EVER. ”a piano on the sidewalk, a wall filled with chalk” hmmmmm sounds familiar. I love seeing all these little lines from things you’ve done or seen together, so adorable. ❤️
