Through your eyes

Life would be simplified
if just occasionally,
I could view myself
the way you view me;
see our friendship
as it is.

Then it might be clear
whether I am just too much;
my mother told me
that I never know when to stop.
Am I too intense?
I want to get it right.

Some people never experience
in a lifetime
what I have with you:
a friend who just Gets It—
ALL of it;
two similar minds
connected so fully.
We sense each other's moods
and even take turns to sleep at night:
I fall asleep as you wake up,
so many miles apart.

We share the same humour
and multiple times a day,
I find myself sending things—
words, pictures, videos—
that I know that you will love.
I'm happiest when we are together
because the laughter knows no bounds.

You rocked my world.
I started to realise my worth,
stopped self-destructing,
tried to keep up mentally,
read what you were reading
and threw myself into learning
your mother tongue.

Amicizia - what a beautiful word
for what we have.

It's just hard not to feel
like I need you
more than you need me.
