Rookie (1987 March 25 / Cape Town)

The man you are

I've tried to tell you so many times,
But I could never find the words,
So I’m putting pen to paper
And hoping they’ll get heard

Two moons less an orbit
And already there’s a lock on my heart
Sealed with a kiss
Hoping we’ll never part

Seemingly an eventuality
Fighting to defy the convention
Just wanting to be accepted
Without starting a rebellion

But getting to my point
After being blessed with the presence of your treasure
Watching emotion wash over you
Just one of my greatest pleasures

Sometimes I fear
I’ll never truly have your heart
I know, that can never be
He’s from your soul, and I am not

There’s no comparison
He’ll always be number one
While I’m just the stars
and He is your sun

But all this time
Watching and feeling
Crept into my heart
Giving everything new meaning

You are you
Because of him
The man I love
He brought into being

Thankful I am
Indebted I feel
For granting me happiness
I didn't think was real

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
