“You gave me blue and I gave you yellow. Together
we are simple green. You gave me what you did not have, and I gave you
what I had to give-together, we made something greater from the difference.”
-excerpt from “When Giving Is All We Have” by Albert Rios
**To Skye: for making me believe in sweetness again, and making sense of my sound.**
Maybe our husbands and wives are not necessarily the ones we marry, but rather those with whom we unify.
By “unify” I mean become a much more better “one” because of our individuality and difference. We transform naturally in a way that is both inevitable and irrevocable.
Yellow stays yellow. Blue stays blue. And when they mix, they are green -not because of what either gave up, but because of what they allowed.
Together, they are what they might never become apart.
