This one’s for you – for each of you who –
Stand by me when life is all awry and askew,
This one’s for holding me together when I’m lost and crumbling,
For those silent nudges, and the pats on the back that keep me going,
For putting up with my incessant bawling, for seeing through my farce,
For lending me an ear, for owning me – with my flaws,
For spiffing my insecurities out before they seep through my veins and buckle me down,
For not letting me fall apart during moments of inexplicable self doubt – this one’s for simply bothering to stay around.
For times good, bad and rotten,
For words, occasions and memories that’d be cherished and forgotten –
Happy Valentine’s to you,
You make every day worth looking forward to.
