I Owe You


I owe you
That’s something I could never deny
Not even if I wanted to.

I owe you for cold mornings
Short sleeves and goose-bumps
And a warm arm wrapped tightly around my shoulders

I owe you for dull afternoons
Shows I’ve seen a thousand times
And laughter at things I see each day

I owe you for tired evenings
Shadows dancing almost as close as fear
And a lazy grin with a bright reading light

I truly do owe you a lot
And before my life is through I’ll owe you more
But I promise, somehow I’ll pay you back.

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
