I am a puzzle piece,
I am uniquely shaped
Which means I cannot fit
Wherever I am placed.
I have some rough edges,
And my shape is not smooth.
I have some points and gaps
That make fitting hard, too.
You didn’t seem to mind
When you started to see
My true nature and shape
With my complexities.
As I got to know you
And you got to know me
We both soon realized
Our pieces fit nicely.
You help solve my puzzles
And help complete me, too.
I hope someday I can
Do the same thing for you.
