I Know

Good afternoon, dear reader. Today for #NaPoWriMo, we were challenged to write about something 'we know'. It can be something factual or something we believe. This is a wide open prompt, and it really is the kind I like. And so, I think you will agree that this poem is totally me. Once again, this one is for my best friend, my confidante, my lover, my wife. I love you always, Dianne. I know this.

I know my heart beats
in time with yours,
everyday together
is magical.

I sense inadequacies,
for I do not know
how to love you,
other than giving
my entire being
to you.

I know you love me,
your passion for us
takes me beyond
what I deserve.

When doubts arise,
we work together
to put salve
on unintentional wounds.

I know we are

I know we are meant
to be.

I know
I love you.
