I stumbled across this today and really like the theme of avoiding co-dependency

Love One Another By Khalil Gibran (aka Kahlil Jubran)

You were born together, and together you shall be forever more.
You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days.
Ay, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.

Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other's cup, but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread, but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.

Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow

Lifeboat,
This is beautiful. I wrote a poem I believe I posted awhile ago with the same title. Rather than have either one of us search for it, I will post it again:
Love one another
Lie your sister or brother
Because every Tom, Dick and Steve
Are related to Adam and Eve
In one way or another.
~Davidf
Have a blessed day!
