The best Valentine’s gift I never got you

We made a pact
no Valentine’s presents this year

we’ll put the money towards the hot tub

but then you showed up
with tulips in all the colours
because you weren’t sure
which was my favourite

and a bar of salted chocolate
which I meant to share
but forgot and ate it all
and then you smiled
and told me
you’d bought two

all of it makes me wish I’d surprised you
with a book
which is all you ever want

but I know
that in your old-fashioned heart
I did get you a gift

by letting you
love me.
