The Joy You Give Me

– Shana Susan Ninan

i long to hold you close,

taking in your sweet, comforting smell.

i know i can wake you up in the middle of the night,

knowing that you hear my innermost thoughts.

i’ve loved you like none other, lorded over you

when all else perished.

i love you, my Friend,

my Book.
