You chose me

when I couldn’t choose myself.

When I was swimming in  darkness,

awash in ink,

blocking out the love.

You remained beside me

when my words didn’t make sense.

You stayed. Listening.

Seeing who I would become

and already was in the moment.

You opened up a new vista

where we stood together,

our backs to the past.
