I’ve truly loved you for years,
for thousands of minutes,
through maple leaves on the ground
and dandelions on the grass.
I used to dream that I could be hugged and kissed
without asking for it.
I used to imagine that one day I could be loved
with CAPITAL LETTERS.
I used to have this image in my mind
where someone truly loved me.
I don’t need to dream or imagine things anymore,
because I have you,
I have your love and kindness,
I have your hugs and kisses
I have your love.
