Do you realize how thankful I am for our shared humanity...

The knowledge that you are your own human being... not a means to an end... nor an object meant to give my life meaning... status... or pleasure... but a person real and whole... with your own feelings... thoughts... and desires...

You were born like me... were a child like me... grew to be who you are today like me... complete with your own fears... and vulnerabilities...

It is a beautiful thing... sharing moments with you... living them for all they are worth... quiet moments of joy... of sadness... passionate moments of extreme bliss... and anger... to share a life with you... in its myriad of forms...

Your uniqueness... always surprising me... your infinite quirks... your ever changing tendencies... your evolving forms... so diverse and perfectly flawed...

Our shared humanity... the substance of which... brings depth... not fathomed in ocean... nor sea... whose waves lay bare... upon the sands of our days... the very treasure... of our lives

of sand and determining
which ones are priceless
the piles grow higher
with more zeal to get to the bottom
of what it is that makes the heart tick
