Because

Because

 

you love me you dream my dreams with me,

and sometimes, you dream them for me when I forget to.

Because you love me you listen to the words I say,

you listen to the silences that say much more.

You respect my choices

even when you don’t understand them.

Because you love me you give me space to thrive,

holding me close in your heart.

You even love my friends

though they seem crazy at first, at even second, glance,

and you help me to embrace the future,

space that holds the vastness of the universe

between the two of us, though no one

could ever embrace such a cosmos,

together, at once,

because
