As I sit down on the couch beside you, I take the section of the newspaper you've finished. I'm surprised that after so many years together I always wonder why you need noise. Not that you don't like quiet but that where I can go all day in silence you like background noise. You have the TV on CMT so are getting music and videos. I settle into an article on what flowering shrubs are most heat resistant to the Southern summer. I stretch my feet out finding the perfect spot against your thigh. You reach over and touch me and say "This is about you". I'm puzzled and say what? (I know I'm not in the Sports section of the N&O). "This song it's about you, it's for you, listen to it." I put the paper down in my lap and listen and watch the video and....tears fall down my cheeks as you scoot over to brush my tears away and kiss me.
