To My Best Friend, My Love

These are the things I've never told you

But I wish I could

Because you need to hear them even more

Than I need to say them.


You are brilliant

You are kind, and smart, and valuable

You are attractive 

And I am so lucky to have you.


You are more than what is in your head

And when you feel like you are not enough,

Know this:

You are so much more. 


You are a fighter

And you are brave. 

You have gone through so much

And I know that you can do anything

You put your mind to. 


I know that sometimes it feels like nothing is right

And you have nothing to offer, but


Even if you don't like anything about yourself,

I do. 


I wish that I could tell you this

Look you in the eyes

Because I want to make sure you understand.


This is a love poem. 

A love poem to you and to all your traits that I admire.

Someday, I hope you can love them too.
