I choose to love

I choose

to be

open,

to be

willing

to look for

ways

to love

you.

I choose

to forgive,

to understand,

to be generous of

your weaknesses.

I choose

to love

the way

you were,

the way

you are,

the way

you choose

to be

tomorrow.

The Geography of you and me

We can look at each other
From both sides now;
Letting the distance between
The me in you and the me in me
Soften us.
Knowing so perfectly
Each other’s geography,
We can pause to stay comfortable
In each other’s silence,
Leaving the lights to burn
All through the night.
