A Gift

I have something for you; all for you

The rest of my kisses, what’s left of my heart
All of my flesh, all of my scars
I can give you the key to my mind
The birthplace of my semi-sanity

I can give you my temperament
Both sanguine and phlegmatic
You alone may be the one who watches
While I spin in circles in the parking lot
Looking for lost stars

I will give you laughter and
All the affection of my eyes

I hope you will accept the curves
Of my spine, my sides, my lips,
And whatever may come of them
Dash all the clocks so we may lay,
Without time and his consequences

What tenderness may be left in me,
I surrender to you.
And only you dearest, will know
Of the signing faces in the clouds
I guarantee your trust is safe with me
And your hands will always be welcome in mine

My life is the something I have for you; all for you.
