My Other Half

You are my equal
my brother
my friend.
It is my broken hearts
you seem to mend.

You know my likes
Dislikes
And my pet peeves.
You’re the one true part of me
That I hope never leaves.

If you help me
Then I will help you.
I hope you find
What we can truly do.

When I needed you
You were my other arm.
Please hold me to your chest
And protect me from all harm.

I hope you help me
Through my lightest nights
And darkest days.
And that the friendship love
Forever truly stays.

For you I beg
Straight on my knees.
It is you I need
I want
I greed.

I need you in my life
unlike you to me.
But someday
one day
I hope you see.

You are my equal
my friend
my brother.
I hope you realize
you truly see.
You’re half my life.
You’re my one and only other.
