i like to look at me through you
try to see what you see in me
because when i look at you
i see my challenger, my leader
my lover and the keeper of all my hopes
you shower me so sweetly
with your thoughtfulness
with your sacrifice
with your wit and your love
you show me curious things
you are my personal encyclopedia
i want to understand the things you love
i want to know how your brain works
you create a sense of purpose for me
you inspire knowledge
you teach me the love of persistence.
you are mine.
and when i look at you,
i see a better version of me.
