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.
