It’s Love

It’s Love

The most romantic thing you’ve ever done

Is brush your teeth while we’re on the phone

Because you don’t want to stop talking

And every minute matters

You’re so comfortable with me

That it’s like I’m lying in your bed

While you’re talking about your day

And you step into the bathroom 

To brush your teeth

I say “Honey, I can’t hear you.”

So you poke your head back into the room

To repeat it.

Only now I can’t hear you 

Because I’ve seen your face

And deafness comes over me

Because the flash of your smile

In my room

About to crawl into my bed

Reminds me how lucky I am

To have you for my own

And to listen to you brush your teeth…

It’s love.
