I am walking into this new year and greeting it like a new lover.
I am nervous, a little apprehensive, and so excited.
My fingers are trembling upon the buttons of my shirt.
I want you to see me, to touch me, to start.
I don’t know what you will think when you see me, but I want you to see me.
I want to see you.
I want to explore you and get to know your intimate depths.
I want to roll with you, grow with you, learn with you.
Take me on a wild adventure with you.
Show me things I have never seen and I will do things I have never done.
May I find kindness in you.
Happiness that explodes from my soul.
And when we are done, may I realize that it was in me all along- you just helped me discover it.
