You can call it love, but what I feel is the need for you to know that you’re a treasure, a gem no longer hidden.
I feel the need to show you how much you mean to me and how important you are.
And although others might not give you the same attention, or agree that you are a person of significance, you make me smile, and smiles lead to comfort, and when I am comfortable I can open myself up to your attention, and gather up strength to give the same attention back.
We can become important, people of significance.
Important to each other, significant to one another, self-confident enough to leave out all the rest, blessed by the fact that our life stories overlap, forever grateful for the experience we share, making the most out of this loving affair.
