A love letter to the world

I write this here to everyone I know.
My life doesn’t make sense without you.
Because you make my heart come alive.

So independent and intent on proving myself,
I’m still learning that part of being human
is needing others–

I need your hand held out.
I need your quiet patience.
I need your surprise bear hugs.

I need your view of who I am when I doubt myself.
I need your, “but how are you doing?” when
I have spent my time asking everyone else this question.

So quiet and content to just sit and watch the world,
I need your invitation to join the dance.
I was made to need you in this life.

And I thank you for any little piece of yourself
that you have given.
You have built my heart up
into a patchwork of missing parts.
