Daily doses of sincerity held in hugs,
Meander through to where it beats.
Vestibules and ventricles of welcome,
Tendrils of tenderness caress and kiss.
Considerate ways always mean so much,
Bouquets of scented words tied in bows.
Flutters of heartiness grasp one’s breath,
Acts of kindness never cease their surprise.
Strengths of love rest comfortably in situ,
Hearts bonded by the most profound depths.
