For the way you always knew what to say

But when I felt insecure and lonely

Your words didn’t make me feel okay.

For the way you made me taste the universe

But you were a pond that I stepped myself into

And with that, I struggled to immerse.

For your peculiar way of making me happy

And maybe, also, because for the first time,
