for those of us who love you
who choose to see you
beyond outward appearances
we cannot help but admire you
though it’s often difficult
to express exactly why
*
how can i begin to express it?
your casual way?
your pensive questioning looks?
your thousand mute expressions?
**
you abhorred masks and euphemisms
you detested white-washed walls
designed to guard distance
***
for those who love you
you let them see…
a human heart struggling
with all the raw manifestations
****
you never fit the mould
you never even tried…
a right-brained fellow
living in a left-brained world
*****
for those who love you

– who hold you dear
there are no goodbyes
you keep on breathing
… going the extra mile
to challenge the norm
