Connected

I know things
lots of things
I’ve forgotten things
many things
it’s because they no longer matter
to you or to me
when they did
I took the time to know
because it mattered to you
(and I love you)
I learned about things and people important to you
… the list is not important
but you, all of you, are.

I hold your secrets
closed in my heart
where you placed them
when I listened to
the words and the gaps in between
as you shared
joys and sorrows

We
connected.
Didn’t we?
Deeply and meaningfully.
That’s what we do for those we love.
Isn’t it?
