My Girl

She is the reason I breathe,
why I need to thrive and push on,
she showed me love I had never known,
’til I held her in my naive arms,
I have her, and in that,
there is focus and peace.

    1. Thanks, Alex. I had her at 23. We’ve been through a lot together, but our bond is so strong. She sent me texts today that were seemingly inconsequential, but they brightened me up, I am very lucky to have her.

      2. It’s true, and a few extra heart emojis that are different colors.
