I need you because I love you.

Moments with you clear the darkness clouding my vision.
Your voice feeds reassurance to the light inside.
Melodic and masculine, sing the song of my heart.
And all the times I’ve felt unworthy, you reveal my true value.

You, by my side, is all I need. We could live
under a highway, without everyday luxuries, and still I’d sleep
soundly under the stars. I lean on the structural sanity of
your stoic demeanor, even if at times, you struggle to hold on.

You saved me from the dangers of my past.
You protect me from my present self.
You are my reason.
