Sweetheart 

Sunshine 

Darling 

Beautiful 

Babe 

All the names I answer when it’s you calling 

We go together like 

gin and tonic 

cheese and crackers 

movies and popcorn 

Sundays and brunch 

And a jacket on a cold night 

Every moment with you 

feels like freshly laid sheets, 

strawberries dipped in chocolate, 

my birthday, and multiple hugs 

I don’t care if it’s too early 

I know what I feel 

I love you 

and it’s okay 

If you don’t feel the same way
