you see me. | a poem.

DSC_1326Sweet and scared,
You see me.
You recognize me.
I don’t intimidate you
with my needs.
You don’t turn away
from my pain.
You embrace me.
You look at me
and you see me.
You see all of me.
And because you do,
it’s not just imperfections you see.
You bring out my beauty.
Your loving draws
out the lover in me.
You give me the room
and the space
to be who I am,
cherished and flawed,
beautiful and fierce.
And for all that you are
and all that you do
all that you say
and all that you’ll be,
for everything I see
when I see you,
I love you.
