All I Am

Mon, 10/16/2017 - 21:31 -- MMAfan

All I am is afraid.

But in your grateful silence I read a note of understanding

as if somehow you know my coward's heart

is yet capable of great things.

And in the deepening twilight

the shadows immutable in your face will never change

from the tender smoothness of granite

you will always know who I am.

And so I need to tell you that in my heart

I am always burning a candle for you.

I will never forget your memory.

You light up sometimes and it's so beautiful to see!

And I just want to tell you that I don't care 

about if you think you've done horrible things, that tear you apart at night.

I don't care what you look like, I don't care

what you sound like, I don't care if I'm going to be able to know you

for one precious more day or a million years.

I love you because when I'm with you it's like

surprising, unexpected, bursting in on joyfulness!

You see, it's because I know you that I know who I am.
