You stoke the fire in my heart
Each and every damn day
Even after year & half apart
Whatever can I even say.
You touched me deep and true
Peeled away at my rough veneer
Touching reserved for only you
Melting me when you were near
So, I look not to recover lost moments
But only to see those ahead
Those not happened yet in this life
That keep me hanging by a thread
I’ve lived my life far, far too long
By the opinion of others; their ideal
To hear their version of what is wrong
But they do not know what I feel.
Now is time for me to take my own
To stand once again upon my pride
Before chances all are totally blown
For from you, never again shall I hide.
I stand virtually before you now
With heart in hands and on sleeve
Caring deeply for you, this I vow
For never did I ever really leave.
