There are worlds
we have discovered together,
travelling to distant lands
full of unknown terrains,
our hands joined
and our hearts as one.
There are also worlds contained
within me now that are brighter
than they were before,
all because of the love
that you have given me.
I wanted to give you some way
in which I could show you
how your love has changed me
and how it has formed new roads,
new pathways within my body.
Standing before you,
I’ve opened myself up like a book,
pulled back the covers of my skin
so that you can see the pages
that I’ve been able to write upon.
You can see where the dark forest,
which took up so much of me before,
has made more room for areas
that are bright with new growth and hope.
My light from within is shining
down upon the water and grass
that has taken root there.
If you look beyond the mountains,
you can see the worlds
that come from my imagination,
full of stardust and magic,
waiting to be discovered.
Just as you’ve changed the world around me,
you have also shaped the world
that I carry within.
Every time you tell me that you love me,
my internal world grows a little bigger
and the worlds
that we can discover together
