Courage

Courage

~

Do you have the courage to love me?

Not just for now,

but forever?

To love me with all of your heart,

with all of the passion of your mind?

Do you think you can sustain that love,

always being optimistic,

working to nurture that love?

Can you do that when our cultures clash,

when our goals conflict,

when are stars are not aligned?

Can you be brave

when I seem too powerful or

when I feel strongly I'm right,

and you know I'm wrong?

Can you have the courage to believe

that the sunshine of truth can overcome

the sorrows of our past memories?

Can you have the courage to believe

I will always love you

even though I don't yet know you,

even though we haven't yet met?

~~~
