This poem is my way of conveying my appreciation of all of you — my beloved Medium family.

It is entitled: Why Do I Love Thee, Let Me Count the Ways

Thank you most kindly, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, for the prompt (not that you had a choice, lol).

Without further ado:

Why do I love thee, let me count the ways

I love thee because you embrace me exactly as I am
Despite my flaws and blemishes

I love thee because when I’m in the depths of despair
You’re always there to listen to me with all your heart

I love thee because you bring out the best in me
Even on those days when I’m feeling buried in the blues

I love thee because of your abundant courage and wisdom
So vulnerably and honestly expressed in your inspiring words

I love thee because of who you are — kind and compassionate
These days the world needs people like you more than ever before

I love thee because I have found my true family in all of you
Not my biological one but the one I was always meant to have
