For You

Author: Paddy Noble

For You


When clarity makes my heart dance
I know it is you
pulling at the hem of my mind
unravel me quickly.


I am getting smaller
while you are getting larger
I want to thank you for your gifts
before I disappear
Every day I'll sit here
so that if you should come by
I might see you
and joyfully whisper my love.


I shall wrap my tears of joy
in words describing your beauty
so as not to let my love disturb
your constancy.
