Seeing What She Wanted

All the fear fell awayShuffled under a pile of sparkling aluminum cups What she must have felt As she smiled my doubts away And let me smile back Without my pity, there was beauty I saw pride

What else she felt I don’t think it mattered I knew the joy she gave A gift; rude to deny And I guiltlessly accepted Perhaps shamelessly Perhaps graciously Was it good to not question? Or fully empathize? I only felt that unbridled positivity That made me a little less negative And, I think Made the world brighter
