what you needed

You once thought happiness was what you needed

Bubbles, balloons, cheesecake, nature walks

Creating a smile rounding out your face

You once saw love as required

To fill the holes in your heart

To be desired, needed, wanted

You once felt friendship and community as saviours of your life

Looking out not looking in

Hand in hand, hugs and giggles, never feeling alone

I knew all along what you required

Stability, the tao to sanity, peace

Opportunities to open up, to grow

I know you’ve always cried for help

For happiness, love, friendships/inclusion

Confused and saddened by the without

I am always what you needed

To give you, hand in hand, heart in heart

Happiness, love, friendship/inclusion, stability

    This is lovely on so many levels. Knowing you possess all that is needed is indeed a good state to be in.

      I think so. It’s getting that serendipitous moment when such things become clear.

    Wow, this is good, Phylor–So true for me, “what I used to think”.

      Thanks! :]

      The needing don’t always realize they already possess the answer to their needs.


I love dialogue. Do you?
