You are so much more
then you let yourself think
You give so much more
to those blind to your heart overfilled with generosity.
Why do you fear
That you think too highly of yourself?
Fear you are not enough.
Not worth it.
Fear that unrequited love
Is proportional to your self-worth.
Remember that moment listening
to love me like you do by the string quartet.
The moment that grounded you.
When you realized the ridiculousness of putting yourself out there so much
for someone you don’t really want
But your want just aggravated
By its lack of return.
Maybe the universe did it because he needed it.
Visualize that moment
when you get on your knees at your wedding to embrace your loving mom.
Hug your brother who is a groomsman. Tears fill your eyes as your dad lets you go. And when he lifts the veil,
you still can’t see your husband’s face.
But you know he is smiling
Encountering the most beautiful thing
That’s lifted him up and forever his.
Find him. You will. Keep going.
