I can learn to trust:
Innocence, the touchy feely wonderfulness you share with everyone.
Respect, for private conversations with our beautiful friends.
Moments, when you forget you’re with me, until you remember lovingly.
Orbiter’s, that can barely disguise their agenda’s, until you assert yourself honestly.
Occasions, where I risk opening myself up to play – loving you.
Fear, when my thoughts take me to dark places & I have to learn to speak softly.
Silences, that are sacred reflections of us & I learn how to listen.
Times, when unconsciousness collides & I am awakened, letting go.
Your heart, that shines just for me in our togetherness.
I am learning to trust that I will be ok,
