No less deserving of my love

She was no less deserving of my love
for having been comfortable in the shadows
She should have had no less of a place in my heart
for having been tender rather than fierce

She took my hand and said
“I love you so much.”
She wrapped her arms around me
when I could not find words

She is no less deserving of my love
for all the time and care that have passed between us
She has a place in my heart
that no one else will ever touch
