Poem - What You Need

What You Need

I could use a million words to write this poem

Every one about how great you are

Such sweet phrases that would melt your heart

And leave all eyes wet with tears

I could organise a massive flash-mob

With singing and dancing galore

Everyone would stop and stare in envy of the one who inspired

such excited glee

I could spend all my money

To buy what you desire

Everything you take a fancy to would be yours

A never-ending procession of bouquets

But I will choose to give you what you need

An ear that you can use to vent your troubles to

A hug when you are feeling low

A kiss to start the day

But mostly I will show my love

With a cup of tea and a biscuit
