Poem: To Turn and Look at You

When I think about the way that it’s turned out
disappointments, failings, and missteps review,
If the worth of it I should begin to doubt
I’d need only but to turn and look at you

I still stand by everything I’ve ever said
and if asked if circumstances I foreknew
would I then have chosen different words instead
I’d need only but to turn and look at you

When they ask me to describe my fondest dream
the elusive aspirations I pursue
I care not how enigmatic it might seem
I’d need only but to turn and look at you

If all women in the world were mine alone
Siren, mermaid, queen, or teenage ingenue
none of them would I select to share my throne
I’d need only but to turn and look at you

I’d need only but to turn and look at you
for my heart beams bright when you come into view
should they ever ask me if my love was true
I’d need only but to turn and look at you
