I know you unlike anyone
I know the gleam in your eyes when you are happy and
the tilt of your head just slightly when you are sad.
I know the way you like your coffee in the morning
way too much sugar and just the right amount of
I know your laugh and how
it changes when you are with different people.
My heart knows your heart.
We are like old friends that only just met
years ago or maybe centuries
I know when you are hurting.
I know when you need a hug or
ten shots of something too strong
I know you feel like giving up.
The weight of the world feels too heavy on your shoulders
And you feel alone but
I know that you are not.
I do not know all of the answers.
I don’t know the future, I’m not even sure of the present
I have never been good at adding or subtracting
but I know that I would do anything
to keep you from drowning.
I know that if you were too jump
I would be at the bottom to catch you.
This is messy
We are messy
The world is messy
But I know my world isn’t my world without you in it.
