I want you to be happy
Be. happy.
With whatever you are doing,
and with whomever you are with.
Be happy.

even without me.
because
your happiness
doesn’t entail me
to be in it.

But don’t worry,
All I wish, is for you
to be happy
and that will make me
happy, too.

Because nothing, not ever,
gives me more joy,
to see you smile.
genuinely.

And I guess that’s why I know.
I know why I love you.
