Simple Truth

The simple truth
         of my untold love for you
                         is rare
Once found
        too precious to return
                        to priceless to replace
But you must know
        that it is yours alone
And live
          without the fear
                         that harbors greed
I come to you
       a jagged peak of woman
                  eroded by the heavy hand of nature
                            and circumstance
Would you, like the water
         soften and polish the rough edges
                   and wash away the circles
                             that pool beneath my eyes?
Let us flow together
         the ocean and the sky will teach us how
                   and sleep in the warm embrace
                             of simple truth.
