Complimentary

You do not complete me, instead,

Compliment me in my entirety

Fitting into the spaces where I falter

 

A loving embrace, a casual reminder

Not to forget my keys on the counter

As I always do.

 

When stress overwhelms and leaves

You crumpled in a mess on the bed

My goal is not to fix you.

 

Comfort and security

A gentle push towards our goals

A united effort towards happiness

 

Laying in bed, blankets askew

Your hand in my hair, giggling

About something stupid that I said and you can’t forget.

 

I giggle too, because I know the jest is only that

And I can feel your hand on my back supportive

Of my every success and failure too.

 

I look forward to you,

And only you

And always you.

For as long as you love me too.
