A Token

This is a small token

to my better half,

the person who still makes me

smile and laugh.

The person who had reason

to show me the door

but instead offered

words of love to reassure.

It was never my intention

to end up this way

but thanks to you

I improve every day.

With every beat of my heart

my love grows stronger

my only regret is

I didn’t show it more

when we were younger.
