Needed

Alex with legos

I need

to be with someone who accepts me just the way I am

and  loves me still.

 

I need

to spend the whole day

just doing not much of anything with this person

 giggling, laughing, being silly

doing what strikes our fancy at the moment

not even needing to leave the house

 

I need

to know I'll have this person's

complete and utter attention

promising to do the same for him

entering into his world completely

learning lessons hidden in play

forging connections

unbroken by time

 

And, I think, that this is what love means,

or at least, partly so.
