For your eyes,
How they look at me
As if there were nothing else.
That look on your face
Makes me believe
I am beautiful.
Ever convinced me of that before.
For the respect,
Genuine or no,
It is nice to be acknowledged
As a competent individual.
Your arms are safe and strong.
I like it there.
Your hands are large and powerful.
They create magnificent structures
And delicate artwork.
Your shoulders hold the weight of a lifetime,
Yet you make me feel completely at ease.
For the first time
I cannot bear to add to your load,
For you have been so gracious,
So kind to me.
I can be myself with you,
You hold open doors and pull out chairs.
You lift boxes and cases and escort me up the stairs.
You stay by my side when I am down.
In times of trouble you are always around.
At the end of a hard day
Your smile remains.
You patiently wait, no matter my delay.
We solve the world’s problems one glass at a time,
Enjoying the spirit lifting effects of the wine.
Thank you for being a part of my life.
If you are real or in my mind,
I don’t know.
I don’t care.
I only hope,
I can say thanks.
And repay you for the amazing life
I have now
You supported this wild eyed, crazy headed, fool with a dream.
