It Really Does Count
Don’t even think about buying me anything
I see you trying to find some way to reward me for giving all of me to you
Doesn’t matter what you buy because it won’t keep my desire to be around you on the highest of levels
So I don’t need to be showered with your gifts
When I have you
The biggest present ever
The greatest gift of all
The best wish I’ll ever make
It’s you that I love
I give it to you
You receive it
We don’t owe each other anything,
When we both deserve everything
Should you decide to get me something anyway,
Knowing that I’m against it
I won’t love you any less
I’ll admire you more
I know that whatever you purchase can be returned or exchanged
Like it or not, I’ll accept it.
I also know that it’s the thought trapped inside of the mind of your beautiful self that enables you to add buying me something to the list of wonderful things you do for me for no reason.
It’s the very thought from you and the reason behind what you do for me that will always be the priceless gift you give that I’ll never return or exchange.
So I throw away the receipt…
