I know you've posted a lot of poems lately, and I want you to know this resonated with me the most out of several others I read before the weekend. Everything came together for me in this. It reminded me of Scripture, of the famous "love is patient, love is kind". There's an omnipresence and also a humility, in the closing lines, of knowing and accepting who you are in their light. You are not simply a shadow, or an afterthought. You receive that love and learn from that love and give to it as well. I appreciate the simple statements too that speak for themselves. The similes and metaphors that show this is love and resembling all kinds of it. My favorite line was about love frightening you, because you know next to little about it. I feel like that can be true for many things. We can know and name and acknowledge love, and be blessed to be in its embrace, yet still wonder how it came to be. But that doesn't take away its authenticity.
