She liked having me around

She never really said she loved me,
But I could tell that she liked having me around.
She thought those words are overused,
Exaggerated and abused,
And though it bothered her a lot,
I said them every chance I got
To let her know that I liked having her around.
Through countless cheerful celebrations
And tearful trials and tribulations,
I was her rock, her friend,
Her knight, her circus clown.
The time we had was more than good,
I wouldn't change it if I could,
She didn't need to say she loved me,
Her eyes told me that she liked having me around.

    Sometimes there is no need for words, Jim; love is reflected in the eyes and the way two people interact. Yet...there are moments when words are like cherry on a cake! Regards // paul

    Interesting, enjoyable take on a very underrated aspect of love, methinks. :) gw
