He stands before me

Says nothing

But my name.

I don’t look him in the eyes,

I already know

What they look like.

They look like everything

I’ve ever wanted.

 

He stands before me

Says nothing

But my name.

His voice is like music

To ears

That have never heard it.

 

I get on my knees

As he takes my hand

To make me stand again.

 

He stands before me

Says nothing

But my name.
