The Things We Do ~ For Love

The Things We Do ~ For Love

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay


We find meanings hidden 
in the littlest of things.

And the things we do 
for love.

Inside jokes and knowing smiles
your fingertips lightly touching mine,
while water rushes underneath our feet,

as does life, 
and we strive, to catch
a moment of togetherness. ..

I can understand this, but most of all, I can feel it. That's something I wish I could make the reader do. It's an artform for every writer.

Be sure. Yumna.

You've always been able to speak a tome with only a few words. Yet again, you've proved it: your poem says it all.. as it should be, sincere and very real. It reaches out, touches me.

Beautiful thoughts.

It can be conveyed with just a glance.

Lovely third verse, that shows how you have to have experienced love to truly understand.

"The littlest of things" accumulate and over time show love. It's a smile, gentle touch, holding a door, maybe a morning cup of tea or coffee delivered bedside. Yes, what we do for love, and love is often returned. A touching, sincere write.

this is real love...the little things mattering so much...the slightest touch, the nod, the looks...
the feeling of togetherness even when not together...
love this...and you had me singing 10CC.."the things we do for love" as i was reading this.

Your words felt like flowers opening... the soft, gentle pause before the bloom... how lovers learn to breathe as one, opening together, hiding in mysteries... subtle, knowing smiles... the touch of love. And yes, as we age it seems those moments of togetherness seem to come less and less. May it never be.
