a secret

each tree 
waits for you
to look at it
with love
and say hello
my dear friend


can you imagine

what if
every sentence we spoke
was a melody

what if
every conversation we had
was a symphony 


just a thought

he asked
why watch sunsets
when you see one
each night

i said
why wouldn’t you
when no two
have ever been alike


you brave soul, you

the most courageous thing
you can do
is to share your heart
with a world
all too eager
to tear it apart
