my words for Lori, part 1: what can I say?

Words associated with Fear

Lori, what can I say
to make you see the you that I see?
how can I express my feelings
of love and friendship for you
to you?
when even I can’t understand myself?
I’m afraid you’d misunderstand
and I’m afraid

all that I have to give you
are these words
unlike me, my words are alive
unlike me, my words will survive

you are vivacious, this I know
because being around you
made me feel alive, if only for a day

you are pretty to me
when you’re up and down
all around and all the time

you’re beautiful because you care
and there is trust there
trust enough to love
more than enough to love

true are my words to you
because they belong to you

    Since I gave the original of this two-part poem to Lori when we said good-bye to each other all those years ago, I didn’t want to revise it. I kinda feel like the words belong to her now.
