Special thanks to my fellow YAM tribe member, Heidi Johnson, for offering today’s prompt. Here’s my poem in response:

Dearest one
Thank you for accepting me
Thank you for loving me so fully and openly
Thank you for supporting me, believing in me, trusting me
Your kindness and friendship make me feel like a million
I cherish you
In every moment
