to me
is not
flowers and chocolates
candlelight meals in posh restaurants
grand gestures on sports ground score boards
expensive jewellery and perfumes gifted in fancy ribbons and bows

to me
time set aside just for me
the simplest of foods prepared by your hand
words written from your heart to mine expressing your love
the raw honesty of your need for me and my need for you laid out clear

I know so little
of this romance
so what do I know?
