Five Minute Friday - tell

Every Friday we unite for five minutes to write on one word. Only five minutes, that's all we get, that's all we have. And then, right where we are, no edits or second-thoughts, we publish those words. This week, we write on tell.

I tell you that I love you.
I whisper it in your ear.
It's the first thing you hear when we see each other.
It's the last thing you hear when you go to bed.
And all day long.
At all parts of the day,
I try and make sure you hear it over and over.

But words, telling,
they only go so far.

I want to make sure you know it by me showing you too.
By being patient.
By being kind.
By showing and modeling a good heart.
By showing and modeling how much a part of everyone else we are.
By listening to you.
By getting excited for you and with you.
By being so proud of you.
By pushing you to be your best.
By dancing with you.
By reading to you.
By hugging you.
Kisses all over your face.

I want to tell you through my hugs.
Through my warmth.
Through my eyes.

I want you to know that everywhere you go,
you are loved
you are love.

I want to tell you through holding hands.
Through touching toes.
Through kissing noses.

I want to tell you everyday,
you are loved
you are love.
