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

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
