I am in a crowd,
with everyone around seeing nothing
of who I am. Then,
you see me and say
my name with that little winked smile. And,
I crumble from obscurity to the one on throne,
surrounded by my lovely wife’s eyes.
You bring me to the pedestal I always avoided,
making sure we bring the world
a little more laughter than we cake take in; you
bring me to what seems to be a part of this world,
much more than I could ever carry alone.
