a quick love poem

when a friend falls down and no one is around

who hears it?

dear a

sometimes I like to imagine you in france

all baugettes and drapey clothing and little coffees in little cups

golden sunlight in little alleys with falling flowers and

a smile on your face

 

and the pink shadows falls on your clothes and you smile to yourself because this is what you have deserved for years – for always – and

 

dear a

youve taught me to look at the moon and the clouds and the noise in my emotions

you’ve taught me to laugh and eat donuts and share myself

you’ve never

hurt

me.

 

so, dear a

I see you take up space and I applaud

I see you take up space and I will you to grow three times in size, a giant, a tower

to shout yourself into this world

 

dear a

you care about people I forget about

you worry for others I don’t even notice

your heart goes out to me and mole and people who don’t deserve it

you wear your compassion on your sleeve and

you love with generosity

 

dear a

you have been many things to me

one of my wisest friends

one of my closest laughers

one of the most important people in my life

 

you have been many things to me

but you have never been

a

burden.
