Just Love Me

Dying light delivers ghosts of futures imagined
Wights to tease the fears of loveless nights
When simple glides my answers
Across the expanse of my elder years

No treacherous specters of precognition
No goblins salivate for my tender heart flesh
Notions of a life fulfilled with honor and dignity
Backed by legacies of stalwart good endeavors

Look to the evening sun
Look to midnight blue skies
Look to dew-dappled mornings
Look to noonday heat

Hear my heart and touch my soul
Acknowledge the scent of my victories
Taste savored triumphs together
Observe who I am and just love me…
