Tell me a secret.
and my lips will touch your ear.
like a feather, like a flower,
and I will sing you a song.
Then your eyes will look at me.
oh so lovingly.
Where do you keep your secrets?
In your silly dreams perhaps,
or your sarcasm and sincerity—
I’d like to know.
And I will listen very carefully.
to your breath and your heartbeat.
because I know I am there,
and you love me everywhere.
