Poem for you.

You are
a reminiscent smile
a ticklish tear
that morning thought
a conscience fragile
a profound hope
a bruised desire
a stolen time.
I am naive to talk
of things such as the universe
the laws of attraction
or your theories of praying,
but I close my eyes
and confess to myself
I wish
that there be a world
beyond
the echoes of the songs
we listen over and over and over
beyond
the fear of happiness or hurt
beyond
those silent tears of powerlessness
beyond
the beliefs of resistance and persistence
a universe
of abysmal acceptance
of truth and fearlessness
of fire and desire
of timeless romance
and the beauty of silence
where you and I
more than anything else
be.
Just be.
