i watch with care
how much you care
how open or self-protective
sharing the authentic self
you inscribe the verses
through loving tenderness
you caress my soul
by reading others
you become the writer
by listening I read you
for what matters most
lies between minute membranes
not monumental projects
but sentiments we leave behind
what we remember is love
she gives color
she gives richness
she alone consoles
so, remember
you have a heart of gold
you are the light
in this dark world
