Gave me something that I needed.
Indebted to you.
You are powered by wanton unselfishness.
When it was darkest.
And I kept my afflictions, inadequacies and doubts to myself.
To serve as my purgatory.
Your faith; your unconditional love; your encouragement.
Served as a life perserver that allowed me…
When I threatened…
To break your heart.
To squander your faith.
To bring you shame.
I said can’t…
Your retort was..
You held fast…
To see me rise from the ashes redeemed…
As I savored the sweet substance of redemption you harbored no surprise.
You saw what I didn’t know that I possessed.
That is powerful…
You are beyond measure.
Amazing, unfathomable consequential.
I am nothing without you…
The sum of all parts, cannot be segmented…
Momma; Daddy; Brother; Wife; Sister; Cousin; Auntie; Son; Uncle; Grandma; Big Momma; Paw-Paw.
I am you.
You are me.
