because we are

every year is a miracle
of light

we are alive
with & within
each other

with eyes closed
i feel the warmth
of you––
with open eyes
i see
your soul

i want to make
you happy & bask
in your happiness

you were born
with a happy heart––
a place for me
to live

& whatever happens
in the tides of
time––

love fills this
moment & paints
the sky
bright––

because
we are
