    I love you

    For putting your hand

    Into my heaped-up heart

    And passing over

    That you can’t help

    Dimly seeing there,

    And for drawing out

    Into the light

    All the beautiful belongings

    That no one else had looked

    Quite far enough to find.

    Are helping me to make

    Of the lumber of my life

    Not a tavern

    Out of the works

    Of my every day

    Not a reproach

    Because you have done

    More than any creed

    Could have done

    To make me good

    And more than any fate

    Could have done

    To make me happy.

    You have done it

    Without a touch,

    Without a word,

    Without a sign.

    You have done it

    By being yourself.

    You change for two reasons; either you learn enough that you want to or you've been hurt enough that you have to.

    To win a war is as disastrous as to lose one.
