Corinthinian Love

I wait for you

Whether you're getting ready for an hour

Or you're not ready to say it back

Because I love you.

I buy you flowers

And I let you win at Monopoly

I show you it with more than just my words

Porque te amo.

Go out with your friends

I'm proud to be with somebody so strong

I don't own you, but I know that you're mine

I appreciate you.

I don't have to be the breadwinner

I already won because I'm with you

And I'm happy to cook up the bacon

That you brought home after a hard day at work.

I delight in the truth

Knowing how separate and different we are

Connected in two parts by agape

And one part in eros.
