met me in my space: you didn’t ask me to walk too far out.
You came into my space and made it yours.
I put flowers in the corners to brighten up the rooms.
You added lamps and a coffee table.
I strung tiny lights from wall to wall
you pulled in picture frames filled with new memories.
When I looked around, my elbows felt claustrophobia kicking in
and you asked me to lay down.
You made your arm my pillow
and kissed my forehead lightly.
I opened my eyes to a ceiling made of stars — we had all the room in the world.
met me in my space
and practiced the “whatever it takes”
You made an empty space a home.
hope I’ve done the same for you.
