Thank you for teaching me to make art

When I wanted to finish my color by number kit.

Thank you for helping me forget the time

When I had every hour cleverly plotted.

Thank you for loving me

When I couldn’t believe it.

Thank you for being there

When my kidnapped me and I was far far away.

Thank you for helping me remember

I write poetry

When I was busy doing figures-

You didn’t know I wrote poetry,

You didn’t tell me to do it-

But you gave me a reason,

And I was searching the world for one,

Not knowing what it would look like,

Or why it should come.


It came because you needed me,

It came because I needed you.

It came because we were both lonely.

It came because we like to love.

It came because we said yes.

And it will stay as long.
