1. I said, “I love you always.”
You smiled and quietly said, I know.

2. I’m going to ask so much of you, but it’s not for me.
Because you can.

3. You are my water and I have come to drink.
To fill, to break, and be

I have come to be broken open
To be broken open is to flow-

Break open and break me.

4. You are my water and I your bay,
Your tide calling your ocean floor.
Your air
Takes my hand and walk into…

5. “We are going under,” you said that once-
But I will surface and bring you air
until you learn to breathe.
On your own

6. Open
Your eyes and look
(We’re under water now)

See me seeing you
Like the first time,
Like always.
