Such a simple task that means so much.
You don’t have to move mountains, or wear a cape.
You just have to page through your favourite book next to me,
While I lay across from you, watching my favourite show.
Just make a funny face at me from across the room.
Listen to me while I’m replaying the events of my day dramatically.
Laugh at the right places and roll your eyes on cue.
Just do it, don’t think.
Don’t ask, how or if you should.
Sit with me in silence when I’m sad.
Hold my hand and don’t.
Smile at me,
Give me light when it’s dark.
Scold me when I’m wrong.
Embrace who I am.
Just be there.
And I’ll be there too.
