I remember you.

You’re the one who made me feel like a real person by focusing on my strong points and holding me up on on my weak ones. Who would never let me quit. Who always struck the line of care right through the center of us whether I was being good or ridiculous. The lifeline.

I know now that, in the days I felt myself falling, I did not, because I was leaning on you. Regardless of whether you were present or not. Reminds me of a long ago written line of poetry: “all by myself with you by my side.” Took awhile, but I understand it now.

Thank you for all the holding up. The love. The never-ending belief in me. The care. Always the care.

When I move on, I’ll find you there.
