dear hubs:

this valentine's day...

i'm not going to get you chocolates.
because chocolates can't tell you:
that you are
one. handsome. devil.
and chocolates can't tell you:
that you are the best friend i have ever had.
and i'm not going to get you something new and blingy either.
a new watch can't say:
you are the world's best father
...
and it can't say:
you make me laugh so hard that my tummy hurts
and my eyes tear up
and my heart feels just that much lighter
and more joyful
because of you.
and i'm not going to get you a new lexus either
(even though we all know that's how you really show someone you care)
because a lexus can't:
rub your shoulders,
run its (non-existent) fingers through your hair,
and snuggle down in the covers and watch re-runs of "the office"
with you
(like' i'm going to do tonight.)
i'm not going to get you a new xbox game
because you're too busy playing with your son
and doing nice things for your wife
and rolling on the living room floor with the dogs
to play it.
because you're just amazing like that.
i'm not going to get you flowers because:
duh, they're totally for girls.
...kidding.
but i'm still not getting you flowers
because even the most beautiful flower
falls short when compared with the beauty
you have brought into my life.
i'm not going to buy you...
well...
anything.
because you've told me time and time again
that you already have everything you want.
the good news is,
that means you don't have to get me anything either.
not flowers
or jewelry
or candy (please no candy)
or clothes...
or anything at all...
because it's pretty tough to shop
for a girl who has everything.
(all of the important things anyway...)
besides,
we've already given each other
the greatest gift two people could ever share.
him.
...and i get the feeling
that' s going to be a pretty hard one to top.
