326 All I Have to Give [05 July 2000]

All I have to give
is of me.
My body.
My word.
My soul.
My heart.
I long to whisper in your ear
so that you know I’m real,
so I know that you are real.
The doubt always crosses my mind,
when your words I do not see,
or your heart I do not feel.
This fear within me
cannot be stifled all together.
It raises its ugly head
whenever I am alone.
Yet something within me
always rises to face this beast.
My heart buoyed up then knows of you,
knows you are true and that my soul
is drawn towards yours.
Wishing to remain in your embrace,
all I have to give to you
is all I have ever wanted to.
My body.
My heart.
My words.
My voice.
My passion.
My fear.
Everything that resides
in this entity called me.
