To try to touch you is difficult in this world so demanding.

All the emotions and surrounding memories give a hue

to that which is your life and are freestanding,

imprinted upon each facet of what I see as you.

I’m not proud of my fears,

and the sins that overtake my years.

I am weaker than all that time has driven

through you and me, and so I’m not forgiven

by God or by man, may swift justice succeed,

nullifying our love, letting our hearts be freed.
