~What a comfort it is to know
that I have yet to meet my greatest love
I find strength in that fact and relief to realize
that no one has ever filled the gap
to gain that eternal notoriety
as the one to whom I compare the rest.
~I feel confident in understanding
that this time I have spent in mediocrity is not wasted
but is, instead, a learning and testing ground
providing me with the wisdom to recognize you when I see you.
~After the near tragedy of almost believing
that it was over for me
this thing called love.
~Nearly forcing me to almost consider
that my life would dissolve into
the catastrophe of forever looking back instead of forward.
~What a challenge
thrilling in a way
to understand that you’re still out there to be discovered
And that when I find you I’ll suddenly know
that it’s you.
~I’ll know that this transitional time
of loneliness and wanting was worth it
that there’s no more someday
only this day and each day after
as the pieces finally fit
and make sense.
~That with you, in you, through you
I am home.
