sometimes i call you kitten
but really you are a grizzly bear
who only happens to adore me. 

i wanted to leave a mark somewhere -
to make a difference -
so i could say thank you
for freeing me of the hollows i came from.
but there were too many people to thank
and i got so busy, marveling really  
in everyone else's brilliance -
that i forgot to become someone important.

i hope you will forgive me also
for loving everything that is a little crooked in you.
there is something about the way that light bends
when we are together
and i am certain 
this is how you've saved me.
