He told me

He told me he loved me
I didn’t see it hidden amongst the common things
The coffee made
Just the way I like it
The door hinge fixed without a fuss
The overlooked mess
My car fuelled up
Even the two teacups he bought
Just for us
To drink tea
On a Saturday morning
He never had the time
Or the words
He told me
It just spoke so quietly
Through no fault of mine
I misheard

  1. There are many ways of saying I love you. Sometimes, its just a mundane “have you eaten?”. I love what you’ve written. Especially the opening lines
