Summary: Love abides and grows stronger.

Notes: This is the tenth in a series inspired by the Treksoap Jon and Mal, and is a bit more specific to their situation than most in the series, as it refers to Malcolm's decision to continue an unexpected and unusual mpreg.

You change my life.
Since I've loved you, I've had to reassess
all that I am, all that I thought I was,
all that I hoped to be.

You challenge me…
my preconceptions, my assumptions.
I've dared love deeper and stronger
than I even knew was possible

And then when I think
my life has settled down around you…
you stir it all again
and bring me such a gift…

a breath of the older dreams
that I thought I'd put aside for new ones…
still new and fragile, young as new life
and as precarious.

How I love you!
