I Look At You.

 


I look at you, my love,

And I see myself.

 

My desires.

My inadequacies.

My achievements.

My vulnerability.

 

I look at you, my love,

And I see you.

 

Your tenderness.

Your masculinity.

Your ambitions.

Your kindness.

 

I look at you, my love,

And I see our future.

Our worries.

Our offspring.

Our contentment.

Our fulfillment.

 

I look at you, my love,

And I see the icing on the cake,

The sweat cleaned off my brows,

The cruel whispers turned to dust,

The palpitations of my heart ceasing.

 

Finally resting,

With you, my love.
