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
Still
He told me
It just spoke so quietly
That
Through no fault of mine
I misheard
