|I am the wisest fool
By marychristeta on 06/08/2016
What is a gift that keeps on giving?
Nothing that produces rainbows from every one of your corners, I hope.
What I have discovered in him,
my one darling,
is a gift constantly recognized, regardless of show or color.
It is, and will ever be...
When his voice is the sound of my own advice,
When two moments radiate to two thousand, and I am left only wondering how time has passed so effortlessly,
When a smile betrays my concentration when thunder shatters my window panes and I feel thrilled and disappointed the he wasn't next to me feeling the same momentary stomach-drop of sky-wonder...
As a child, I knew love to be true. It beautified and culminated, it was never ugly nor uncomfortable--
Ah, but you, child, knew nothing of true love, for it is the everything of everything, all wonderful and uncomfort,
comfort and bewilderment,
shyness and boldness,
radiance and dullness,
shame and adoration.
When the walls of my heart summoned the will,
weary and grateful, to drop their fortress and let their prisoners,
my captive thoughts and acts,
fall against his humble ears,
I realized for the first time what it was to receive a gift.
When fear and love are at last at battle, you will realize that love,
will find a way to slide through your teeth.
You will speak truths you never thought you would utter,
and they will be met with
a trusting heart
and wise lips.
It will likely make you a fool,
but if you've found a gift as ever-giving as I've found,
you'll be a fool indeed,
but you'll also be a constant gift to the fool who loves you back.
