A Letter to Eli
You inspire me to move beyond seeing
You teach me. You love me. You help me
see that I am not as perfect as my ego believes.
There are days when I am lost in my head
and you show me the suffering
the realities of life
and I love you all the more for it.
I was not put here to feed the illusions
and yet they feast upon me.
You show me. You teach me.
And I love you for it.
Don't hide your truths, your demons,
as hard as they may be,
they make you the man I love.
