My Person

You are my greatest reward
And greatest challenge
Not a minute spent together
Would I change

We've held each other up
And torn each other down
Tried to forget, only to forgive
But one thing remains

You will always be my person

Hi, Carrie,
I really like the contrast and the depth of each line. An intimate message which I can interpret to be to your darling, or to yourself. Either way, full of sincerity.
Thank you!

Thank you. This is definitely for someone else and every line is true...he has been my greatest reward and my greatest challenge but I would not change one minute I spent with him. He is the one thing I can honestly say no regrets on...and am glad we have another chance...

I like how it’s not portray as anything but beautifully flawed. Because that’s kinda what support is about right? We all need a few quality people who are there despite the challenges.

Really great job,

You are is about being there through all the challenges as well as the good stuff. Glad you enjoyed
