I've seen you wandering over the garden of my love poems many times before. I've seen you cherishing them in all of their beauty and not alone. For you, the garden was nothing but a pond where you saw a reflection of your own love coming to birth. Even though the words that flowed in that pond belonged to me, it felt like they weren't mine alone. Your reflection made it very clear, how I was just a poet, and how the minute I birthed those poems, they had made their home in every person that felt them in their bones. Among those countless readers that have sheltered my poems in their hearts and souls till now, you're undoubtedly my favorite.
And not just coz you read every single love poem I wrote. Not just coz you reminded me again and again how much you adored those. But coz when fate snatched away that garden from your reach, you managed to grow a garden of your own.
To me, you are what strength looks like. To me, you are what growth is. I've seen you go through difficult times and come out victorious. I've seen you suffer for things which your beautiful soul didn't deserve. All the dirt qnd filth that tried to dull your shine, you outgrew it all. You're one of a kind and you deserve unconditional love coz you love with the same intensity, you wear your heart on a sleeve.
So let these words provide you with the love that the stupid people in your life failed to give. Let these words remind you of how special you are and how people failed to realize it. Whenever you feel low, let these words be your home. Whenever you feel down, let these words remind you of your worth.
Coz @jiniaa, to this poet, you aren't just a reader now, you're a poetry of your own.
