Expectation

by Candice Ann Moraga

If you were bleeding and faint

I'd give my last drop of blood for your life

For, though I may not be a saint…

I love you more than a wife

I expect nothing in return

If you were gasping for air

I would not hesitate

I'd give you my very last breath

With which to resuscitate

I expect nothing in return

If you were swimming in past regret

And drowning in salty sorrow

I'd plunge into turbulent depths

My ocean of love, you could borrow

I expect nothing in return

When you shiver in tundra of judgment

Frozen and frostbitten passion

I would bare my soul just to thaw

The cockles of heart with compassion

I expect nothing in return

If your feet were lead and earth-bound

Your spirit - shot - with shame

I'd enfold you within my wings

Together - we'd soar - no blame

I expect nothing in return

If your reputation was tarnished

And you shied away from the light

I'd offer the glow of my halo

Illuminate you in the night

I expect nothing in return

Like the purity of a mother's love

I'd relinquish it ALL - for YOU

I'm not asking for praise or thanks

I'm not asking for credits due

I expect nothing in return

TRUE LOVE's easy to discern
