only to expect the best

only to expect the best
is what you find right—

then life’s not a test,
by the might of your light:

if you missed the mark
when you chased it true,

it didn’t miss your heart—
all comes to you.

had I given my worth
before your eyes met mine,

I’d have lost a soul,
given all of time.

what greater debt then is due
than, for me, to be all I am to you.
