What about you

What about you
makes me want
to be enough
for you
to make you happy
to satisfy
you
your desire
your need
to be free
safe
with me
a child
perfect
Is it real?
 
What about you
drives you
to get up
each day
happy
to be alive
searching
for what?
Beauty
Adventure
A place
to fit in
It is real
Is it free?
 
What about you
makes you tick
drives me wild
not yet –
not me
you
Smart
Beautiful
Interesting
I see it
always
kindness
It is free
Is it love?
 
What about you
climbs
to where
you become
who you want
to be
reaches
for more
moves
forward
your life
means something
leaves a mark
makes you proud
happy
simple
It is love
Is it you?
