perhaps the only thing I ever

jumped into fearlessly was love and

perhaps I made those too much the

defining moments of my life.

perhaps I still do.

when you are telling me

my limitations, at least I’m not

afraid to love. I don’t consider

this a fault.

I look into your eyes and

you can’t hold the look, you

have to turn away because

you are afraid.

I may have endless lists of

shortcomings but your one

seems to trump all

and, honestly, I would not trade with

you and live with that one fear

for anything.
