Silent Sweet - Poem by R.P. Coursey

The fact that
You exist
Is enough for me-
That you breathe the air
I breathe-
That you feel the same summer breeze-

The same things make you smile-
And some things make you cry
And when you are angry-
I really know you are

So I survive
Knowing -
That perhaps
One day-
Your hand will accidentally
Touch mine-

That will be enough-
To sustain
My love
