We’ve been together for years
Changing with the seasons
And yet our character is still the same.
Across thousands of pages,
hundreds of entries,
stacks upon stacks of books,
With you I have put my life into words.
WIthout me you could not function,
Left abandoned without no reason or rhyme
Only spending the days waiting
for a hand to hold you up.
Without you I could not manage,
Being aimless and lost from myself.
I’d look at what’s in the mirror
And not see one I know.
I give you purpose
So that roller-ball gives out for a reason,
But what you give me is far greater.
You gave me a voice when I could not speak.
You brought me calm when I was afraid.
You gave me release when I could not move.
You brought me home when I was lost.
Most of all you reminded me
(more than any mirror)
Of who I’m supposed to be.
