Thank you for your hands that keep me safe
Reassuring with a gentle grasp
And strong enough to withstand my anxious clutching
When it all gets too much.
Thank you for your attentive gaze,
For seeing the things I so desperately try to hide from the world
And doing all you can to help me out on days I struggle to raise my head.
I offer the same to you. When you need me, I’ll be there.
We are both jokers who have finally found each other inside the deck
And nothing will separate us from now on.
