I’ve Got Me

is an important declaration

to have understood before the revelation

that my heart had to break upwards a little

to take in the information

that you lit up when I walked in the room unexpectedly

that you got excited about the plans we just made

that you are thankful for this human


Knowing that I’ve got me

makes it easier to say

you are so important to me

that sometimes feeling your chest rise and fall with air

makes my soul want to weep with gratitude

that such a person is alive right now

expressing through this fleshy vessel

so much more than breath

utterly unique aliveness and love

a God I can touch.

And knowing that you’ve got you

is fresh air

that is also solid

enough to lean in to

when aliveness aches to be

born through me.
