How do i know thee when i know not thyself ?
How do i love thee when i love not thyself?
Oh ! what paints your thoughts
when you close your eyes
Mind traverses where the eyes do not see
The moments of truth and the agonies of past
Sway in the heart with the future in the dark.
i stop to open my eyes
with tears kissing my lips ,
the cold air soothes my lungs
i smile for i know i am
still blessed to be alive!
