I Have

A Poem By Timothy // 5/22/2009

I have two ears to hear you
If you need to talk

I have two feet to stand on
If you need a friend to walk

I have two eyes to see you
And the beauty you deny

I have two hands to pull you
From the places where you hide

I have one mouth, unopened
That never needs to speak

I have two arms to hold you
Whenever you feel weak

I have one heart to open
If you need to share

I have one love to tell you
I will always be right there


Aww, that was

Aww, that was sweet.

That was lovely... :)

It's a good picture of

It's a good picture of community, I think. Doesn't have to have anything to do with crushes or whatever.
I think a lot of people have lost sight of what biblical community is, but I think this comes pretty close to being a picture of that.

Just be sure to check all the wardrobes.

"I have two eyes to see you
And the beauty you deny..."

(Kyleigh, I agree with you in principle but this poem seems a bit more specific to me).

I like how complete this

I like how complete this poem is. You know, going along, going along, and then it slows down and says " I have one love to tell you I will always be right there", and that finishes it off so nicely. Short and simple, yet big and deep. Just lovely.

Not to disappoint anybody,

Not to disappoint anybody, but there actually isn't anybody I "like" in that sense of the word. There are some friends whom I love a lot, though.

Thanks for the comments. :)
