I have smoothed out the waters
Stilled the heaving winds and quieted the seagulls
All that I might whisper into your ear,
“I love you”
I have straightened the roads
Leveled the mountains and filled the valleys
All that we might walk together, forever
I have conjured the angels
Restrung their harps, and led them in chorus
All that you might hear heavenly symphonies
While you slept.
And all that I ask of you, want of you, need of you –
Is for you to know you are loved
And that you have shelter in me.
For you, I have done these things.
Because of you, I can do these things.
And without you, there is nothing I can do, or say
That would make anything worth doing, or saying.
