You Force a meeting with all aspects of me I fight to protect you from parts of it that can be scary It is terrifying to hold you so dear All the hope of your future resting on me. Me? Me, so inadequately equipped Still learning while teaching With my fears, flaws and mistakes What if you meet my darkness The parts of me I keep tacked away The ones I struggle to accept Which, if I dare say You senses the existence of. 3 years, you have spent observing me Days upon days of mastering my body language Things unsaid show up in a scowl A too tight grab A deep sigh of frustration None of them lost on you. I'm learning to merge my light and darkness Questioning why I want aspects of me hidden Ascertaining the need to own this flaws Some fears are not easily banished Our helpless mortality being atop The knowledge that I might one day never see your face That I might not be able to tell you how much I love you. The only sure thing is this moment The present, our greatest gift In it, I will always give you the best of me When you by chance glimpse my darkness It will never be voluntarily I pray you remember it's part of being alive and human As long as there is light in our hearts We will see the best of each other In the darkest moments we will choose forgiveness and compassion Always heart to heart, let love heal us.
