I Love You, You Love Me

Because you love me

You would answer every shaky breath of mine with "are you okay?"

Because I love you

I kissed away your tears and held you so tightly

Because you love me

You understood that I need the space of sound, of utter quiet, to take a moment and just exist

Because I love you

I would point out every flower that reminded me of you on our walks

Because you love me

You always held my hand to steady me, so I never had to fear taking the first step

Because I love you

I told you my boundaries, my dreams, and my hopes 

Because you love me

You told me your boundaries, your dreams, and your hopes

 

And we never feared one another would cross the lines.
