Dear

We lead with you

and follow with the names of those

we love, pour our secrets into diaries after you

begin our letters to legends, or fabled visitors with you

 

We formally address those we don’t know

and speak to someone named “John” when we

fall out of love

 

We call out to you to make sure

you are near, while climbing over life’s

obstacles pleading for you

 

We look for you in the dark,  stay

surprised by you.  Witness happiness

with you, sadness too

 

We preface you with two letter words

Championing the good displayed by people

Scrutinizing the horror displayed by people

 

We beg for mercy with you

Pray to the divine with you

Begin with

End with

Dear
