There are many ways to say I love you….

by Rod Smith

The Mercury / Friday – there are many ways to say, “I love you…..”

Other ways to say I love you:

Speak to me. I am listening. Nothing will change how I feel about you. I won’t interrupt you, or finish your sentences, not even in my head. I will do everything necessary to understand your point of view. I will ask you for necessary clarification.

I want to love you more than you have ever been loved. Sharing life with you is thrilling. I am interested in (almost) everything that interests you. I want to be the most generous, most understanding person you know. I will make time for you.

The years ahead will be more exciting than the years we have already enjoyed. You give meaning to the ordinary tasks of life. I trust you. I treasure you. Let’s turn off our phones and talk for a few hours. Tell me what you need. Tell me what you want. Don’t be afraid to ask. It’s important that I understand whatever may be troubling you. I’ll support you if you want to get more education.

I love how independent you are. I know you cannot read my mind. I will work very hard at telling you what I am thinking and feeling. I am listening. Speak to me.
