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
