You offer your shoulder from a million miles away.
You know how I feel from a sentence,
Ten words sent by text with meanings hidden in between.
You soothe my hurt with a story,
A look at someone else’s life, holding parallels and bearing.
You remind me of a memory,
One so deeply etched that I wonder it has been forgotten.
You let me in on your secrets,
You tell me your mysteries and I am honoured to know them.
You offer a distraction,
Taking my mind to somewhere else entirely and calming the terror.
You make me feel at ease again.
For this, I will love you, absolutely and perfectly.
