do you know what you did to me
when i first met you?
do you have any idea how you saved me
how the sound of your voice pulled me through
from the darkness i was drowning from
your words of unconditional love
were the reminders i needed to hear
of all the things i’m deserving of
like life’s little joys
just when i was at my worst
hearing only the awful things i told myself
words so unrelenting… unrehearsed
but somehow you undid all that
even if i had to listen to you on repeat
that even after the day you’d leave
i knew i was already complete.
