Love comes in small change: pennies of please and thank you, nickels of you go first,
ten-cent hugs, quarters of talks over coffee, half-dollar words not said,
and some cents of forgiveness, always held back till the end of the day,
for the dirty socks forgotten on the floor and the toilet seat left gaping in the bathroom.
Lovers save the change of love, fill their pockets and their piggy banks,
to spend on love’s small extravagances.
Love is a lifetime of wealth, mostly made of small change.

something to think about. Always a pleasure to read your thoughts, yearstricken.
Thank you for reading, Shimon.
Aww. So true, and yet so cleverly put! I loved the whole concept and how it’s been pursued and laid out so thoughtfully. Thank you for the refreshing ride.
So happy that you enjoyed it.

That toilet seat is gonna cost me. Off to get a roll of quarters.
You might want to get two rolls, just to be on the safe side.
As usual, cleverly, thoughtfully and truly said. We call it “money in the bank”.
It’s definitely a kind of investment – the best we can make.
What, no mention of the “Susan B. Anthony’s”? Yeah, I had no love for them either…lol
I think if they had made them larger or more distinctive, people might have taken to them. I miss the old silver dollars.
So true. Did they have that odd shape to them or was that a different attempt at a dollar coin? I recall four somewhat flat edges on a coin..But I could be imagining that..lol
Nicely stated. I enjoyed this.
I’m glad you did, Anne. Thanks for reading.
The sweet simplicity of truth.
Thanks for reading, RAB.
Love this. It is better than my system of considering those little things to be “husband points in heaven” or “mother-in-law points in heaven”. Points don’t add up as wonderfully as small change!
I’m glad you liked it. Points or change, we are doing well to invest in acts of love.
I cannot get this one out of my mind — everytime I see some change, I’ll remember this and smile.
I’m glad it made you smile, Natalie.
I’m going to have to think about what our Loonies and Toonies mean!
I love the name of your coins, Margie. I’m sure they represent love’s humor.
I like the forgivenesses… they are priceless.
We always need change for forgiveness.
