I brought you coffee when you’d been up all night reading reports and crawling through Jeffries tubes.


I stood by your side in the empty turbolift, facing forward so you could struggle with your despair in private.


I slept by your sickbed so I’d be the first face you saw when you woke.

 

I gave you roses to celebrate your triumphs and alleviate your sorrows.

I kept my hand on your back as you navigated the choppy waters of alien diplomacy, just so that you’d know I was there.

 

I held your hand when there were no words to say.
