She put a message in a Bottle

Sent it out to sea

The message was about him

It’s contents only

For his eyes to see

The message read thus:

“Thank you for sharing 

Your life with me

Thank you for showing 

Me my weakness 

It made me see the richness

In being whole 

It made me see that

I wasn’t just a part

So I worked on parts


And since you pressed 


I picked up the unfinished 

Bits of me

Polishing them to a T

Am ever so grateful 

No longer doubtful


Without you 

I am finally complete”
