Sometimes
I wonder,
Why him?

Then I remember,
It’s because when my whole world is dim,
It just takes a little bit of him
to bring the light back in.

It just takes a little bit of him
to break my walls in,
and make me believe in life again.

It just takes a little bit of him
to make me want to dance in the rain,
and forget all the world’s pain.

So when I wonder,
‘Why him?,’
There’s no simple answer.
It’s not because “I love him.”
It’s not because “he’s him.”
It’s not because “he’s better than anyone I’ve ever met.”

It’s because when he’s around,
I know I have a safety net.
He will catch me when I fall.

It’s because even when I do fall,
He doesn’t make me feel weak,
As he stands over me, tall.
Instead,
He sinks with me,
Holds me,
Encourages me,
until we both stand again, tall.

That is why I chose him.
Why I keep choosing him
Despite it all.

That is why at the end of the day,
And the beginning of the day,
and even when the sun is highest in the sky,
It is him.

It might very well always lead back to him.
