For ‘Bo:

I love you, but I say stupid shit sometimes.

Once in a while the words from my mouth might bring a tear to your eye.

Every so often, I may not make you smile.

Maybe you’ll begin to doubt all the affectionate words I had typed.

I would let my actions speak, but alas, distance defeats me.

So I’ve put my brain to this task of showing you what is in my heart.

I don’t know if it’ll succeed and so my only recourse is those three words

Still meant as much as when they were first formed.


Hey ‘Bo.

I’m sending you more words because I have almost nothing else to offer.

I love you.
