i have been with you
since the first light of existence
i have been witness to every detail
of every event that passed before me
every horrendous loss and violence
every fearful angry self-denying act

my love for you has never wavered
it is as constant pure and accepting
as it was the day you were born
i am never filled with doubt
but i see that you allow it in
i am your constant bliss and witness
i am the one safe place
to fully place your trust
you are mine and i am forever yours

i love you to such a degree
that i still wait
after an eternity
has already transpired

all in this moment
is still your inheritance

when you are ready
