The Black & White Poet

100,752 poems read

many days ago
I
 collected stars and compared-

without reason

 

my wisdom lacked knowledge

and my confidence - so scarce 

 

but today 

I know what I know

I stand where I stand

and with full confidence I can say

 

I do

to us

 

down the line, 

there may be times 

when

we find our pockets hollow

and puzzles unsolvable 

and surroundings unescapable

 

but 

I will never leave you

I will never desert you 

 

I abandon my own self

long before I’d abandon you

 

you

are irreplaceable

I seal my loyalty with kisses

and my promises with affirmation

 

Life will disappoint us at times

but I won’t let your hand go

nor will I betray you

 

you 

are chosen in my heart…

fully 

permanently

substantially

unconditionally 

and eternally
