To the hidden humans

who love in silence,

Here’s a toast to you,

For your patience,

For smiling to put a smile on another,

For wanting more but you know,

More is not possible,

So you cherish despite imminent departure,

As if this was going to last forever.


Thank you for being grateful,

For accepting that some things,

Are too epic not to experience,

Even if in the end it’ll be painful to let go,

But most of all thank you for just loving without expecting,

Any of that loving to be returned to you.
