Thank You: A Poem

Thank you

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.

No one

Ever convinced me of that before.

Thank you

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 feel

I can

Rest.

I cannot bear to add to your load,

For you have been so gracious,

So kind to me.

I can be myself with you,

Completely.

 

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,

Oneday,

Maybe,

I can say thanks.

And repay you for the amazing life

I have now

Because

You supported this wild eyed, crazy headed, fool with a dream.
