Didn't need a knight in shining armor,
not a damsel in distress.
Wasn't on the market to be financed,
I pick up my own checks.
Didn't require tough love,
nurtured in a balanced loving home -
reminded daily of my worth in gold.
With all bases covered,
didn't need a savior, but an equal.
Mistaken fragments, pieces,
thought they were my own.
Assumed my wings were broken,
as you're accustomed to.
I was what you didn't know you needed
a mirror, catalyst -
For unraveling your truth.
The light, smile in your eyes,
the love, devotion, butterflies -
all real, never lies.
It was true love at first sight -
one that stood the test of time.
Just not meant to forever last -
it's ok miss, remember, embrace it.
May it's light heal your heart and soul
as it did mine.
