Poem #40

Your smallest part
is dear to my heart,
even if that part is shrinking.
Your funniest twitches
have had me in stitches,
so I'm glad you practised your winking.

My darling wife was in the process of losing lots of weight. As of now, she's down by a bit more than 140 lbs. and is very nearly at her goal. She's amazing! So that's what the reference to shrinking parts is about.

The winking reference has to do with her having learned to wink, through practice, since we met. It's not a natural act for her, so it's still awkward. She knows not to pretend that it's a natural act. So she's not prone to using it in public and accidentally creeping people out with it. That's a good thing.
