Just a little bit

Just a little bit of attention, is all that you need to love

Maybe it’s putting the phone down when she’s telling you about that time she loved her college job

Just a little bit of forgiveness is all that you need to love

Maybe it’s letting yourself off the hook once in a while, when you acted needy and petty for the 100th time

Just a little bit of movement is all that you need to love

Maybe it’s taking yourself on a 20 minute walk to shake off the jealousy off your chest

Just a little bit of tears is all that you need to love

Maybe it’s playing that cheesy song and crying yourself to sleep

Just a little bit of laughter is all that you need to love

Maybe it’s breaking into Justin Bieber “Sorry” after a long fight

Just a little bit of mistakes is all that you need to love

Maybe it’s letting yourself saying that hurtful thing because you are hurting so much

It’s about the bits of tiny kisses you showered her with

It’s about the sips of her body sweat you savored

It’s about the lips that you favored that first night you embraced

And what’s not a bit, is a story you tell yourself because you thought the little bits are not enough

And along the way you missed the point

You missed the freckles on her back, the scar on her toe, the tear forming behind her shades, the courage to be with you despite his fear of commitment, the love you thought was never there.
