Puzzling

I don’t want to invade your life,

I want to be a piece of your puzzle;

Just one piece in five hundred,

But having its own place,

A place where it fits perfectly.

And I don’t want to be 

A border piece, or,

God forbid, a corner piece

With two sides to the wind;

But I won’t be the center, either;

There are much more important

Puzzle pieces there.

And maybe your puzzle

Will never be complete,

But it will be

One space closer.

A wonderful metaphor. We all need to be a few pieces nearer complete.

I have taken your request on a very personal level. In this magical and brilliant poem, you are and will always be a a fond and loving piece of my mosaic not the Center but close to my heart.
