Just by Being There
Poetry by Mairi Maclean
I wake you in tears just like heavy rain.
There is nothing you can do for me,
But you do it anyway, so graciously.
Despite the ache growing incessant.
And I know you would take this all upon yourself,
But you just being there is beautiful for my health.
And that is a gift I’ll never be able to repay.
I look at you with pure devotion,
And our love spirals into further motions.
With your being, jokes and cute little flirts.
I have never been so thankful to have met someone like you,
You are my dream and future in all that you do.
