a thousand more.

im showing you how you make me feel,
so forgive me
if i say something in my excitement
a bit too soon,
i can’t help how over the moon
i feel with you.

im showing you how important you make me,
so forgive me
if i say something in my astonishment
that seems a little shocking
it’s more that it feels scary for me 
to have to share what matters 
with a world that’s forgotten
how to nurture wilting flowers in its garden.

im showing you
why you needn’t worry,
i want to be transparent,
the rarity whose steps
speak as nakedly  
as the day we are born.
i’d like to die to live
a thousand more times
and maybe even a thousand more
just to keep knowing you.
