1. When you watch the moon revolve around the earth, you wonder whether the earth even realizes the moon is keeping him stable. Her gravitational pull keeps him tilting in the correct way. Without her, the life on the earth would diminish. However, without him, she would not be grounded. She would be flung out into space until she found another heavenly body to cling to.

2. You kept me grounded in a way I never knew I needed. In the same way, I kept you sane. When I lost you, I found myself clinging to whatever pieces I could find. No one knows how deeply they need someone until they are gone.
