What I Believe

Dedication: To Laura for her faith.

Why do you love me

Why do you love me?
I have nothing and yet you still want me.
I can offer you only myself.
Yet you accept that gratefully.
I am nothing and you are everything.
But you want me to be with you.
Do you see something in me
That my mirror refuses to reveal?
Or is this some kind of game
From the shadows of my mind.
Will be with me tomorrow?
Or will you fade like the mist on a spider’s web
In the early morning sunshine?
Why you love me, I may never know.
But I love you for all the things that I am not.
