When I Laid Bare Everything That I Am - Poem by Gert Strydom

When I laid bare everything that I am
it was totally unconditional
that I told the secrets of my own humanity,
and everything that I am was freely

revealed to you and now I fear
that everything else goes from my thoughts
as if you are the only one
that touches my days, nights and years

and in your love I am totally lost
as daily it takes on new forms
and I know that you are destined for me,
wherever my days want to go

and from the beginning to the end
you fit perfectly into my life.
