how did i get so lucky

to have you sent to me

in an unexpected envelope

sealed so carefully


i had to wait to open

until i finally knew —

when i was healed and steady

would be when i found you


though you are still a mystery,

your heart is very clear.

your being is so calm and kind,

one that i hold so dear


we both laugh at how we write

much better than we speak

so here i am — an ode to you

except my words feel weak.


i hardly know your story

but i see it in your eyes

your pain and your excitement,

your care when you see mine


i think of you each morning,

of what feels a perfect pair

and fall asleep each evening

to the hopes of what we’ll share.
