It Was Always You

I realized you were the one when you stayed longer

You listened to my worries,

even when repeated

I really wanted you there and you wanted to be there

You leaned into my trauma, not taking it on as your own

But to be my support blanket

You wrapped your warm arms around me

Night and day

Day and night

Some days we never saw the sun come up

You watched me stretch across that finish line

You waited for me on the other side

It was alway you
