give and take

i wish i could express

how much you matter


that even though you’re just

one of millions

inhabiting the planet

you make the sun shine

so much brighter


i wish i could show you

the enormity of my feelings

that the days before

weren’t quite as full

until there was you


sometimes i’m not quite whole

i can’t see the good

because tears blur my vision

i lash out with fear

but you hold me anyway


your resilience

your strength

they all inspire me

to grow and become better

each day


someday i hope to give you

what you have given to me
