Poem by Lezel Simons.

Be real.

Give me jokes to make me laugh. Make me smile. Sing to me. Write me letters. Tell me everything you believe in, hope for, dream of. Your deepest fears. Show me your pain. Sit with me. Cry with me. Trust me. Build and create with me. Be real. No pretenses. No show. Just you. I don’t want to be given things. Give me you.
