“You are my
my dreams
and making
a reality.
They lay my

You refract my dreams into the night sky, illuminating this dark oblivion with stars. Those constellations spell out everything I ever needed to know, reminding me that I’m so much more than I ever considered possible. I am yours, as you are mine, and that alone is enough. But you were never satisfied with enough. You pushed me to chase my dreams long past the moon, and though I still have many light years to go, you continue to prove that daring to live amongst the stars is not only possible, it is a reality. And the best part? They lay my monsters down to rest.
