Stronger Together

Sunset Heart


You took my broken pieces

Anomalies and sharp edges

Cradled them in your hands –

Cherished them, and astonished me.


You set about righting my wrong aspects

Gently, without rancour or demand

Unblinkering my blind spots

Encouraging me to discover my faults

To think critically, but never criticize

To forgive myself the past, the hurts, the lies

To see the ways I let myself down

Letting me take my time

In acknowledging the distance

Between myself and

Who I’d like to be.


Each piece you held, you gave me to replace

Loved me, Anyway, and found ways

Kintsugi-gilding the places in-between

The beauty in the broken,

Sight unseen, but not beyond your thought.

Profound; your care –

You fought to let me know

How much I meant, and how much I could be


You knew me more than I knew myself

For in me, saw your reflection staring back.

Our parallels, though miles apart,

Still converging, combining,

Irrevocably intertwined, my 1000mile heart

We’re on our way,

And set for the horizon.


Each day my orbit spins with yours

Tilts and yaws with your gravity

Drawn, irresistibly,

With a force stronger than I knew possible

Unstoppable, and ever Becoming

More the ‘me’ the ‘you’ can see

And you the ‘you’ I know

As we evolve.


I’m here for you.

Because of you; I choose you

Because you first chose me

And showed me that beyond all else

The FirstThing – the EverThing – The EveryThing

Is Love.


And, love,

We’ll never get old:

We’re Always.



Dedicated without reservation, and with all love, to HastyWords.

Love in a Photograph
