Thank you for taking it slow with me. For being gentle, soft. Thank you for understanding that I’m still learning. Thank you for seeing that I am trying my best to not be afraid. I know you are not like those who have treated me roughly in the past, but I am still unsure of myself.
Somehow, it is unspoken – you figured this all out on your own. You diagnosed the situation better than even I; you prescribed a tender sweetness I have never before tasted.
Thank you for teaching me. I do not know how long we have together, but I am enjoying every minute of it. You are my very dearest friend; from you I have discovered so much – I am ever grateful.
