488 Always Wanted [25 June 2002]

do I dare
reach for you?
stretching my arm
to its full length
to find
with my fingertips
the silk that is
your hair
or do I retract
pull everything in
so that I may not be injured
in this selfish quest for you.
will you be the one
to save me from myself?
I don’t know,
but maybe, just maybe
you are already here
and have been
for me to realize
the gift that is you
you who are man
beautiful in all ways
and yes,
in all my life,
amid everything I’ve
ever dreamed
you have been
the one thing
I have always wanted
