Such A Passionate Person (REVISED)

I knew how privileged I was when I came home with a
diagnosis you did not turn your eyes away from – you
say ‘no fear, we’ll tackle it as we tackled the allergy’;
you’re here with no indication you’d have wanted a
wonderful, prettier, younger replacement for me

You see us as a team, as we were when Nici fell ill,
when Tiaan cried feeling life meaningless – thus we
discovered his allergy; tonight we prepare the meal
together, you as captain, I your bo’sun and off we
go on this trip discovering life – thank you for not

Throwing me away when it transpired I’ m not 100%
well; your integrity’s a shining light, your presence
makes the world a brighter place; even the physician acknowledges you in her tests – thank you so much,
thank you for loving the kids and I like you do –

Not half-heartedly, not trying to keep things back for
yourself but absolutely, giving everything – so much
so you shut out the world – it is a new concept to me
yet it makes sense; you’re such a passionate person,
how could it be otherwise
