Just to Let You Know
Just to let you know,
I love looking at them, looking at you.
You’re still mine you know, but I’ve made room. They are at my centre and they’re at yours too.
And I love you for that.
I love you for loving them more than anything.
I love how you open your arms wide to them, no matter what.
I love how they will run to you when they’ve made a mistake, not away.
I love how the whole house lights up when your car pulls in the driveway.
I love how they smell a bit like them and a bit like you after you’ve given them cuddles.
I love how you let them feel, let them be them, let me be me.
I love the man you were, but more so the man you became when you entered into fatherhood.
I don’t tell you often I know.
Life got busy didn’t it?
But I adore this life with you.
I adore us.
Just to let you know.
