667 To Hold You Close [07 January 2005]

I doubt my tears
could save you at all,
but I would try,
just to see you smile.
If only I could hear
your voice I love so well,
then I would cry.
For you are
the one who will protect me
through fear and pain.
You would stand by me
through darkness and despair.
I don’t believe I deserve
you at all, but I will try.
Oh, I will be yours.
If I believe in you,
I know one day
I will see your shining face,
even if I never touch your hand,
I will be the pillar
that holds you on high.
I doubt I will ever know you,
even as I declare my love for you,
but I will forever keep you
safe in the warmth of my soul.
For though to keep you in my heart
seems to mean much more,
my heart will die as will I,
but to keep you in my soul
means that as long as my soul
exists within this universe,
then so shall the memory
of who you are,
exist throughout time.
So much more does beg to speak,
but alas, words do escape me.
For I cannot explain
the beauty of you
to those who could not understand.
I will strive to be
a woman who could be worthy
of the man you are,
without leaving myself behind.
I will love you
For as long as your brilliance shines,
as long as my soul soars
through the sky called life.
