I had a few favorite spots—
there was a bench by the canal
where I could hear water lapping
and pretend it was the ocean.
Or under a giant elm tree
on campus where I told myself
I was camping, just without a tent.
My imagination was the only thing
keeping me sane during nights without
a roof over my head. Then I met you
and you became my shelter
and we saved each other in
a thousand different ways. You are
all I need to be home. You've got
me, body and soul. Always and no matter
where this shared life leads.
