thank you

i take your face in my hands
i put my lips to your ear and whisper
“do you want to live?”
i kiss your cheek
ever so softly
and pulled back
to look in your eyes
you nod slowly

i whisper,
“do not give your love to me because i want it,
give it if i deserve it”
you lean in
put your lips to mine
“thank you”
