To Chelsea

Astounded by your alluring appearance.

Puzzled at times; how one can be so fearless.

Foolish—was I!

 

A smile so bright:

The sun can’t compete.

With a voice so soothing;

Yet still, so unique.

Foolish—was I!

 

Contagious laughter,

emerges from your buzzing body.

Sadness leaves;

Rapidly replaced with jolly.

Foolish—was I!

 

When your lips first joined mine

–A fire,

Lit deep inside;

One I never knew existed.

Everything once hurt,

was now lifted.

Foolish—was I!

 

Love at first sight; I knew it to be true.

Longing for you by the minute, but still,

My fears…I could not subdue.

Foolish—was I!

 

Shackled by sin: selfishness, stubbornness—I Lied.

All the while,

You stayed by my side.

Foolish, was I!

 

Fighting every moment.

Fighting feelings inside!

Trying to break this evil hold.

More lies!

More lies!

Foolish was I!

 

I hurt you when you were weak;

Watching you crumble

Week,

By week.

Undeserving I am,

To see you at your peak!

Foolish was I!

 

You saw me when no one else would;

Saying,

Somewhere inside,

Was a heart still good!

Foolish—was I.

 

So you stayed,

For reasons unexplained;

Loving me—day-after-day—

Just the same.

 

Chelsea,

You brought me back from the dark;

With a love

Which continues to spark.

To this day, and forevermore;

I will love you so strongly: For my heart,

is yours. . .

and only yours.

 

Foolish. . .

no more.
