This time I want to love you
in my presence.
I want to be available again in all
the conversations we used to have
in my absence.
This time I want to taste the pain
in your tears,
let it burn my tongue if I make you
cry again.
I want to walk with you,
be the courage to face your fears.
this time I want to hold you and actually
feel the texture of your skin.
I want to love your insecurities and imperfections
into a new person.
This time I want us to co-write our hopes
and dreams into our conscious realities.
This time I want to be the lyrics
to the music sung by your heart,
and you will be the melody to the tune
of my spirit.

This time I want us to merge
into a crescendo of love, laughter and happiness.
