Complicated love

You laugh with abandonment,
face the world with determination,
and make me smile inside.

Our lives intentionally entangled,
whilst being the adult,
you bring out the child in me.

A complicated love,
you and I,
I never thought I would have.

A prayer I pray for you,
that you will remain secure,
of the love that is for you.

The burdens of adults,
felt intensely by you,
yet you pretend it doesn't exist.

Love, simple yet hard,
Joy, pure yet illusive,
Grateful, yet frightful.

A complicated love,
you and I,
I never thought I would have.
