The World, To Me, Is You

I was once told: “If you look hard enough, you will find beauty in anything.”

because of that–I appreciated the world’s treasures that I had previously taken for granted.

Like the sea, and to witness it meet the shore time and time again.

And mountains, the view from the highest–and how each tree and branch contribute to the most beautiful view.

But then I met you, and discovered that the world, to me–isn’t mountains and oceans.

It’s you.
