i love you because you held my hand when i was about to crumble, and somehow that held me together. i love you because when i am with you, i am whole.
i love you for your determination and your clear head. i love you for preventing me from hating myself for holding you back. i love you for having the strength to wriggle ouy of my grasp just before i suffocated you. and someday, years from now, i will hear through a friend of a friend that you're out there, changing the world, doing amazing great things and i will smile.
