0036 You [16 April 1997]

You are so quiet.
And yet
So intense.
And I don’t know
Who you are,
And why you are here.

I dream of you
In the daylight hours.
Even in sleep,
Do I hear your voice.

I have never felt,
A love so strong.
That it hurts to leave
Your presence.

To be in your arms,
‘Til the end of time.
Let no one bother us
Let no one care.

I wish to be yours
But I am afraid.
Of hurting another,
Of hurting a friend.

How can I understand
That I need not be,
So aware of someone else’s feelings,
And forget my love for you.

I’d give you my life,
So honest and true.
And I’d give you my heart,
So fallen for you.

I’d give you my soul
So that it may be whole.
And so that yours
May be too.

All souls need a partner
Mine is yours,
And yours is mine.
To be whole is the greatest achievement.

I don’t care about your money,
I don’t care about your car,
Or what music you like,
All that I care about is you.

Who you are,
Your life I’ve never known.
The past you’ve lived,
The life you love.

I love you so much,
That I don’t care.
If you do not love me.
For if you are happy,
Then must I be happy.
