You and I
You may never know how deeply I was affected when you came through the door at 7 a.m. Then you crawled in my bed, noting I hadn’t slept, and held me tight. You told me you couldn’t live without me, that you will always love me – your best friend.
You may never realize how you opened up your soul this morning or how much trust it takes to do that. Or maybe you do. Maybe that is the problem. I can’t give you everything, but I can give you a lot. A lot that your heart needs.
You may never know how much it took for me to write that text. The one that said not to call me today. The one that I wrote not knowing what you would do when you got it. The scary one.
You may never realize how much I appreciate you kissing my tears away when you don’t know what to do and how it is the perfect response. How much I need your honesty. Your unconditional love. Love that I haven’t had before. Love that can’t exist with a narcissist.
You and I may not be perfect. We may be indecisive, impulsive, and unsure. Our feelings are difficult and unmanageable at times. But this love and friendship we built is one thing we did right… you and I.
