Loving Me #Journey #Poetry

I need you to be confident –
enough to let me to be alone
I am my best self when I am free
to explore
never question my loyalty
I am unwaveringly for you
almost to my detriment
I have trouble remembering
to care for me
that won’t serve either of us well
I care about you
more than I care about myself
and when I need a day
some time of reflection
a respite from managing
everyone else’s crises
I can recharge
and return better
desperately wanting you
after our brief time apart
