RE:      What I Know, What I Wish, What I Have to Say

Having arrived some years ago at a certain peace about the truth of the unfathomable depth and indescribable height of my love for you, and having also lived and understood the vehement objections associated with all higher love, and having no success whatsoever in sleeping or thinking or working without constant review of such thoughts, I record here (in bullet point – a single appeal to your need for brevity and order) what I know and what I wish and what I have to say. Thank you for receiving this memo in the spirit in which it was written. I trust you will do with it what you will, although I do not expect there are many surprises to be found herein.

  • God placed your fingerprints on my heart
    long before our eyes first met, before
    I ever wondered why.

                It wasn’t somebody’s
    fault, but truth, difficult, emerging.

  • With eyes of spirit, I’ve seen your soul.
    I’ve touched your weakness, and you’ve nothing
    of which to be ashamed.

                Fallen short, we’ve all grieved
    those mistakes we wish could be undone.

  • Walk now through wide field flowered with words
    trail of mere crumbs that only begins
    to express what I feel.

                Know even words escape
    shrinking confines of my mortal mind.

  • God placed eternal seal around me
    that will not be broken save by you,
    your presence in my life.

                And so I face this storm
    as all others, certain of my love.

  • Come near so that you might taste of it
    when the time is ripe for our journey.
    Until then, remember.

                Sun and moon, wind and rain,
    assurance I’d never cause you pain.

  • Pray you, hear my prayers upon the wind
    when dark night surrounds, envelops you.
    Rest well, love. Sleep in peace.

                When you rise in the morn
    live full in the knowledge of my love.

"A Love that Requires Nothing"

I thought I'd felt a love like this for someone... but now I know it not to be the case. I'm not worried though. It will happen eventually. ;)
I like the way you presented this. It's neat and very memorable!

Goodness me, Dawn! You certainly are blessed with the correct name! This is a real awakening - uniquely inscribed and latent with the inexpressible; yet forcefully articulated. And, oh so powerful! I salute you for this memorable and "stand alone" piece; it is completely self-sufficient, polished and complete. A real pearl. I, too, have my most "shining " moments awake for hours in the middle of the night - but have not yet disciplined myself to actually get up and write them down; hence, by grisly daylight, they have palled and been lost. A remarkable write, thank you. Kate xx

Clever write. I love the "God placed your fingerprints on my heart" idea. Great job.
