You’re my home paddock,
My mug of soup,
You’re my warm jamies,
My rain on the roof.
You’re when an ice cream head ache begins to ease,
When you make it to the loo in time to do wees.
You’re my silky knickers,
My new magazine,
You’re my Sunday morning,
My perfect fit jeans.
I really like sunshine, that first scent of spring,
But you are all seasons my favourite thing.
You’re that choccy bit
In the drum stick cone;
You’re my ocean view,
My passed kidney stone.
You’re that fifty dollars in my winter coat,
You’re skinny dips, back rubs and funny fart jokes.
You’re that lovely moment
When blocked ears go pop,
When Cleo shows Kate Moss
With a muffin top.
I like to do cross stitch, guitar and writing,
But really I’d do you above everything.
I know I can sometimes
Be jackjumper bites,
Or last warning phone bills
Or red traffic lights.
I’m frivolous children, a nasty toothache
And once a month I am a deadly earthquake.
But you are the hottie
I put on my tum,
My good book, my clean sheets,
My cinnamon bun.
I really like milkshakes and diamonds in rings
But you are ten carat and my favourite thing.
If you were to depart
This earth become ash,
Then life would be one great
Stinging nettle rash.
You’re so good for me I’d pop your ash in a cup
I’d steep you in water and drink you right up.
I think what I’m saying
Is I love you always
From your weird looking toes
To your beautiful face.
If I put you on Pinterest, they’d all share my pin,
But you’re mine, all mine and my favourite thing.
