Without her I’d have nobody to murmur jokes to

At the grocery store

While confused shoppers wonder why we’re giggling



She can take the dull beats out of each monotonous moment

And infuse them with mirth

And she’ll spread a snickering contagion with her laughter



Without her I’d have nobody to watch movies with

Beneath summer sunsets

While thoroughly-repelled mosquitos squealed past our ears



She can regrow my confidence by removing the weeds

And guiding pesticide over my self-doubt

And planting sincere words of encouragement in my mind



Without her I’d have nobody to make pancakes with

At 1 in the morning

While adding too many chocolate chips to the recipe



She has leads me like a sailor and his stars

That pierce through navy velvet skies

Without her, I would be lost at sea with nothing to guide me
