Here is a full heart
That I can finally pass to you,
Full and brimming.
I have spilled nought of myself
From this vessel of life.
It has been my hope and my containment
Which has brought me through.
I have nurtured and held gently back
My first flush of youth perfectly preserved.
Working towards my future days with you.
I have willingly waited an age.
I have lived away
But loved you intensely over the distance.
I have made ready my gift, I have it here,
But where are you?
