The ghost

I wanted to keep walking with you
then I found I had stopped,
and you were moving ahead.
I wasn’t ready to keep walking with you.
I had hoped I was.

Know that I see you.
I see your path.
It is because of these things
that I want to walk with you at all.

My interest is genuine.
When I found myself flirting with you,
it surprised me. Delighted me.
And more than one night we have held hands in a dream.

But my heart has been tethered to a ghost.
I have been working to set it free.
I will free it.

The fact that I see you so clearly,
is proof that my heart has hope,
has faith, and is determined.

For this, I honor you.
