I worry that my eagerness might scare you away

that I’ll jinx us by believing in a future so blindly

or play the fool once again, falling alone

ignoring any rough waters saying I should have known

better by now, but I’m willing to make a deal.

I’ll be a fool for you if you’ll be the same for me

Trust in me, and us, to expose every depth of you.

Swim in me and my waves of acceptance will gently carry you.

I will let your light explore every darkness I fear lurks within me.

I’ll be home to you and you’ll be home to me.
