And Now You Know

And now you know
That I have thought, “Will you still love me?”
Once you have seen
my all-too-human frailty
and how I often feel
that this bag of bones and blood
is not worth the touch of your hand
and the parting of your lips
and the words that pour forth from them
like a life-giving river …

But it seems that you do
and now life without you
is unimaginable.
