She doesn’t, nor needs to, stand behind him, for protection or hiding, or even shame.
She could walk ahead of him, if she desired, so he could catch her if she fell,
or just to admire the beauty that consumed him.
She chose to walk beside him, in stride with his step.
He never felt so empowered.
He never needed this wholeness until now.
He never stood taller.
When my storm is raging
And she’s my sunny day
Oh she lights me up when I’m in the shade
When I’m feelin’ bitter
And she’s my sugar cane
Fills me up when I get a taste
This is how it feels when you love someone
This is how it feels when they love you too
Whenever you get it back
Whenever your hurt don’t run
This is how you know when you love someone
