How we wrap our love

My daughter runs around the house
frantically wrapping her favourite things
as gifts for her best friend

I try to tell her
that she doesn’t need to show her love
with presents

which she considers for a moment
before going back to wrapping
each of her scrunchies
in tissue paper

and then I realize
why I am bothered by this

for like any poet
my deepest fear
is the insufficiency
of words.
