My Everyday

Who am I too you?

A simple question, passed between lovers who –

At times, find themselves caught in the humdrum of life,

Wondering, how and why –

Did I choose to embark this journey by your side?


It is not a hard question to answer,

but neither is it particularly easy.

Not because the words escape me –

but rather because I choose to live by what I say.


So when I say you are my home – I mean that:

In the good moments I will build a life with you,
and in the bad, I will protect you from the storms that try to break you.

In the easy times, we will enjoy the tides,
and in the hard times, I will come and hold you tight.

And when I say you are my best friend – I mean that:

In the happy adventures I will laugh with you,
and in the difficult moments, I will stay by your side.

In daily conversations, I will adorn you with kisses;
and in the daring conversations,
even though I may avert my eyes –
I will find my way back
into your arms,
and the presence of your warm smile.


And when I say you are my past, present and future –
I mean that through what we have been through,
and through what we may –

I choose you.

Because you are my everyday.
