A nervous laugh escapes.

I am overjoyed.


Tears start to form.

Slowly they fall.

Wetting my cheek.

Never wanting to go back.

Being alone.

Feeling so empty.

I am scared.

This is new.

Being with you.

Being an us.


One half of a whole.

I was an empty shell.

A husk.

Adrift with no purpose.

A constant ache in my chest.

I wasn’t aware before.

It has always been there.

Before you…

There was no before.

The past is gone.

You have breathed life into me.

A future full of possibilities.

This is our time.

Our story.

Our forever.

You are my beginning.

Let me be your ending.
