Youth

Dedication: To my mother for showing me that even she could be wrong.

Youth

When I was a young man, my mother told me that I should be brave.
She told me that if I opened my eyes to the road ahead, I could never be hurt.
And then I met you.
My mother was wrong.
There are times in your life when you must walk blindly
And let your heart lead the way.
There is something about you that tells me to close my eyes.
It tells me to trust you and to love you with all my heart.
It tells me to toss aside the foolishness of caution.
It tells that you love me even though you are afraid.
It tells me that you want to be held and hugged.
It tells me that you want to be kissed and loved.
By me
