Little By Little - Poem by Jeff Gangwer

"Little by little, " she says—
Three little words that become a motto—
The two of us, building a life together

"We need some furniture."
"Little by little, " she says—
Always kind, patient, and supportive

"We can't afford t' fix the car, Baby."
"Little by little, " she says—
Standing in the robes of domestic tranquility

"Ah, man. This carpet needs replaced."
"Little by little, " she says—
Working rice and broccoli into a cheesy casserole

"I wanna fix the house this summer."
"Little by little, " she says—
Mi Papita, mi Tortuguita—her hands in the sink

"I need tools for this job! I don't have any tools! "
"Little by little, " she says—
The two of us, working and growing as one
