My Perfect Other

By David Chitty

You're there when I need you the most.
You're there whenever I call you
You're there when I need someone to be with even when you don't want to be

You give me the will to keep going
You give me the hope that things can get better
You stop me from proposing to everyone I meet.

When you smile I can't help but join you
When I hurt you make the pain go away
When the darkness looms, you can always brighten it up again

I'd be lost without you
You don't complain too much
I need you more than I could ever tell you
You could probably complain a little less
Most of all, you don't ask for anything in return that I can't give
My perfect significant other
You and I are one and you can never leave me
My friend, my love, my self.
