You have never left my side.
This truth fortifies and sustains me,
Making life possible to bear and enjoy.
I was created for your enchantment.
Your desire for me will not dissipate nor vanish.
When I run away, you patiently await my return.
You do not ask where I’ve been, what I’ve been doing.
You hug me, kiss me, welcome me home.
When I leave again, it is the same. You are not deterred.
My departures evoke homecomings of palatial splendor,
Symbolizing your unceasing, impenetrable love for me,
The one who is your only delight.
For your love–
I thank you and am eternally in love with you, too.
