I grow

I change

I look outside


I see you

Do you see me?


You were always there

Looking back at me,

Judging me 

I always thought of that as a bad thing

I hated seeing you.


I still hate seeing you

But it’s different

You’re different


But you never were 

You’re the same and that’s why I love you

I guess I always hated you because of how often I had to see



You were always there

You saw me change 

Even if I never wanted to


I didn’t want to see you everyday

I didn’t want you to see my imperfections

I didn’t want to see you.


But as soon as I left 

I missed you

I needed you


But I shouldn’t care

I shouldn’t worry 

You were always just a light

A distant orange light
