It’s True

You doubt my words

and

It’s true

I cannot feel what you’re going through

Nor would I want to

That pain is yours to bear

But I have experienced love

and pain

I’ve leaped from high cliffs

Put my faith in the wind

Danced on the wings of butterflies

sacrificed all

Just for that smile

You know the one

That smile that says, “I adore you.”

I’ve gained the world in that smile

and lost my throne in its absence

I’ve felt like a God

and the devil

many times

but you’re right

it’s true

I cannot feel what you’re going through

But I do know your pain is true

And the only advice I can give

from an old man who has long lived

is this:

See yourself

As I see you

Then, perhaps,

You’ll be able to love yourself

as I love you

Then, maybe

one day

you’ll fall in love

get married,

Then have this chat with your child

as I do
