Thorntons’ Continentals and Shalimar
Are always acceptable.

And bracelets and sexy lingerie
On Christmas Day
Show that you care.

But if you want to give me butterflies……….

Hug me
when I moan about unmatching socks.

Bother to make me smile
when I’m pouring bleach down the loo.

Buy me M and S knickers
That fit…..size 14.

And congratulate me when I tell you
How much I’ve saved at the Sales.

Very nice poem, short, sweet, to the point, and most importantly well written.
