A special thought occurred to me the other day:
When I open up my soul, you don’t look away;
You hold me at arm’s length to get a better view;
You listen to what I have to say, ‘though you knew
All along what I was feeling deep down inside,
And you say that I’ve no secret I have to hide.
So, from this time forth, forevermore,
I shall let you view my very core.
(written in 1976)
