Tribute to Cody

I love the way
you call back when I hang up.
I love the way
you wear your tank tops
inside-out.
I love the way your
eyes are red.
And I love the way
your skin is almost as pale as mine.
I love the fact you came from Birmingham,
because we can relate to so much.
I love your smell, your beautiful hair,
and your tender touch.
I love the way you tell me I'm beautiful even though I'm not.
I love the way
you let me cry
and I know you love me alot, alot.
I love your big dumb combat boots
and the way you wear your chains.
But, most of all I love you ,Cody, and
I hope you never change.

I really like how you can point out not only his attributes but also your own at the same time without being blunt about it. I mean you really have to read between the lines in this one and that's a pretty powerful thing. You can pinpoint your insecurities in a heartbreaking way and put the spotlight on his dorky little quirks that you love so much and I just think that is so powerful. Have you showed him this?
