I have felt your heartbeat next to mine
as we embraced with warm affection
I have seen your face wet with sorrow
as we witnessed a loss together; hand in hand.
I have heard your laughter boisterously exposed
as we shared humorous stories and jokes
I have never loved you more thoroughly
than when you shared your human self with me.
You are my treasure I carry with me in my heart
You are the reason I smile when I’m alone
You are my collective spirit cavorting in this
one wild, ridiculously chaotic life.
