Emotions are something I wish I didn’t have.
They’re messy and complicated.
I am fickle and broken, and they don’t help.
In case life is not kind,
In case life is not fair,
In case love does not conquer all,
In case what is meant to be does not find a way,
In case I never get an opportunity to make reparations,
In case I do not get another chance to tell you…
I love you. You hold a permanent piece of my heart that time, space and circumstance can not touch.
Would you stay and talk to me? Just until this storm has passed, because your voice soothes the waves that have been crashing against my soul, and I’m so tired.
Be here with me, and let’s talk of love, hope, peace, and the joys of tomorrow; it’s so dark and the world is so hurt, but if we talk for a little while, maybe we can bring a little light to where we are.
So, stay with me, and let’s talk until the pounding has stopped, and the world is silent and still again.”
