I Want to Know

I want to know the joy of how you laugh

I want to know the way in which you dance

I want to know the joy of how you move

This need to know I cannot leave to chance

 

I want to know the beauty of your style

I want to know the kindness that you wield

I want to know the grace that gives you charm

This need to know protects me like a shield

 

I want to know the song of how you sing

I want to know the wisdom of your talk

I want to know that it doesn’t matter

This need to know follows me as I walk

 

I want to know your gentle breath at night

I want to know how you withstand the fears

I want to know the essence of your touch

This need to know is love that dries the tears.

 

(After reading Rumi’s line: “I want to know the joy of how you whisper”)
