it started so tiny.
like a seed, small and round.
with determination and love and warmth
it shot its roots down deep like a web –
with me ensnared like the prey.
but if i am to die here in your roots, web, love,
then here i am prepared to die joyfully.
for where you are is where i am.
and where our love is, baby, i just thrive.
it all just grows,
this love like a flower that just bursts into life.
it is here and it is beautiful.
sound, color, smell.
it draws the world to us as we do our own thing.
with our love we grow more love, more hope, more beauty, more smiles.
and it all just started so, so tiny.
