I’ve been doing a lot of self-exploration and self-discovery lately, and during that process I’ve mostly been on my own. This works for a lot of it, but the other day I needed a little outside support, and found it from a newish friend. Her support wasn’t exactly a surprise, but it wasn’t assumed, and it was most appreciated. I am glad she was the right person in the right place at the right time. Thank you, Kira.


Thank you, dear heart
When I needed you to see me
You were there
And I was able
To let go
To feel
To be

It’s odd to think that
In less than a year
You have become my trusted
My honest
My strong
My loyal
My friend

Others
Who should have been here
Have failed me
Or are waiting in the wings
As though their scene has not yet come

Perhaps someone who knows me
Through my history
Through my past
Could not do what you have done
Could not be what you were
When I needed that self most

Or perhaps you simply
Are different
See different
Think different
Know different
Than those I’ve leaned on before

You were there
When I needed you most
When I needed to let go
When I needed to be free
When I needed you
You were there
Thank you, dear heart
