Simply Love

More and more
I love you
from before
we met;
thanks to the centuries
that built up to this day;
thanks to the tyrants and autocrats
that did not kill your grandfathers;
thanks to those who did not follow into the dream of you and wreck it,
thanks to their boundaries,
thanks to those that built their houses apart from you and
allowed you to breathe this sunshine every morning
before I could
wake up,
open my window,
and breathe the same sunshine
in another part of the world.
