unconditional

I want what makes you happiest,

So I prayed and prayed

For God to bring you contentment

And damn it,

I think He is.

And damn it,

I know for sure it’s not me.

But I want what makes you happiest,

Even if it’s not these endless, gorgeous skies

And the cacti that hug them.

I want what makes you happiest,

Even if it’s not talking until 2 in the morning,

If it means you become someone else’s

Most texted number.

Even if it means someone else

Knows your secrets,

Or notices the wrinkles on your forehead

When you’re thinking.

I want what makes you happiest,

Even though I can still hear your laughter

Echoing in my mind,

And my heart aches when I think

Of how I won’t see you often.

I want what makes you happiest

Because you made me happy,

You made me laugh,

You made me think,

You made me cry.

You made me different

For the better.

And it’s funny because

All this time

I wanted to know

What unconditional love was,

And I think I discovered

How to give it out.

I just want you to be happiest.
