Addicted to Love

A bowl of warm broth.

To fill his empty belly,

New shoes to comfort,

His weary feet,

A woollen jumper to shield,

Him from the bitter cold,

A suit to bring back,

His confidence and self-esteem,

A tie, shirt, underpants and socks,

To feel-good inside out.

The love of a brother,

The love of a sister-in-law

The love of his nieces,

As they held on tightly…

We love you…

As he stood tall, handsome,

Broken by the power of addicted love… loss and heart-break …

Emotional waters that run deep

Addicted to Love…
