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.
