A podcast told me to take the time to sit down with friends and tell them what they mean to me. Immediately, I was inspired to do so. I wanted to sit down with good friends. I wanted to let people know what they mean to me, because no, we do not do that enough.
My next thought was to determine who I would sit down with. I did not get far on that list. By 'not far' I mean 'nowhere'. I knew with immediate certainty I must begin with the one person closest to me.
Not often enough do I tell my wife what she means to me. Not often enough do I make her aware that she means the very most to me. Not since college have I written a poem for the love of my life.
No one else may know what they mean to me until my wife is certain of what she means to me.
What does it mean to mean something to someone
Not many remember your meaningful words Not many remember your meaningful actions
Not many forget how you make them feel
What you mean to someone is the glossy bottle of feeling you leave them with
You make me feel I am better than my worst mistakes
You make me feel gratuitous grace can be torrential
I mean to make you feel a fraction of these
