I wish I could:
let go of me.
hold on to you.
hold you high up above myself and my fears.
admit your effect on me.
enjoy my effect on you.
believe the gentle honesty in your eyes.
hope for that white picket fence.
get giddy for that diamond ring.
be true to myself but most of all be true to you.
be everything you had ever dreamed of.
I know I won’t:
reach for your arm when you turn to walk away.
wait patiently by the telephone for your call.
admit I was wrong.
shed a tear in front of you.
I know you are
better than I.
