i love the things you see

in me

and make me realize

about myself,

it gives balance to the


the childhood


happening so long before

you came;

i especially love

how you always see the best.

today i joined in with laughter

the laughter of passing acquaintances

and you said

how you admire me,

my generosity,

and i thought about that,

the uninvited laughter that came from deep


my chest,

and how they walked on

without even acknowledging


now it makes me

want to cry,

because it is not true,

i am not generous, but

i am still that child


and full of expectation,

believing that kindness is everywhere;

but no, my love,

it is mostly just in you,

you are the very best

thing about me.
