Marker In The Making

I know you.
Stood next to you
among your brothers and sisters.
Felt the same wind,
upon my skin.

You know my inspiration.
Have seen their face,
heard their voice,
felt their touch.

You are my teacher,
my secret keeper,
my coach.

You push me to be better,
hint at what is possible,
give freely
of your beauty,
of your life.

We are partners.
Together we walk a path
trusting that all is as it should be.
