I love you

Take these words,
see their delicate tendrils
wrapped around my heart.

Take my heart,
ball it up in your palm
until you can fit it into a fist.

Now unfold your fingers,
loosen your grip. Find
that there it stays rooted.

My love, 
allow the gentle unfolding 
of fingers, finding that it was, 
after all, unnecessary.

Of good mornings and of finding for certain that nothing has ever felt like this.

Wear my words

Go on, love, drop your anchor in the sea that is me.
Let me be your sanctuary and I will claim the vastness of stars and sky
to be the warmth that lets you dream.

Welcome home, my crazy. How I have missed you so.

I will let your light
shine through the broken
cracks of my heart.

I will let your light
make it whole.

Nary any doubt. Oh my.
