You love/d me.

You knew me
when I was small
and ugly, and
less than

Still, you loved me.

You transformed me
and unfettered
my eyes, so that
I could finally see
in places that
once were
black voids

You loved me.

And because of you
I grew
beyond the chains
that bound me
to the Earth

You kept on loving me.

And now:
instead of
four enclosed walls,
instead of
all this sinking…
I soar
between the edges
of the Universe;
I am Boundless
and Free

Because you love me.
