Your Gentle Gentleness

Your gentle gentleness
Unguarded
Takes me by surprise
Stops me on my track
Wakes me to what I’ve forgot
During the years we were apart
Reminds me of what I used to know
Makes me want to fall
In love with you again!

I came back with a dread
That I would face the snide remarks
The jealousy and the comparison
And all the nosy questions
That’d been thrown at me before
And the aggression I’d heard and seen
Prompted me to stay away

I drew an invisible line
I spoke in a different language
I kept my face straight
Talked as little as I could
My sides were protected
My fearful mind had painted
You as a monster!

And to keep my worldly freedom preserved
I must prevent you
From getting too close
That was what I thought
The initial stance I took
When I came back
To see you

There were moments that I felt
We were almost strangers
My heart fluttered
From anxieties and the worry
That we no longer
Knew each other
Each’d been settled in its own way

But your gentle gentleness
Unguarded
Takes me by surprise
Stops me on my track
Wakes me to what I’ve forgot
During the years we were apart
Reminds me of what I used to know
Makes me want to fall
In love with you again!

I long to reconnect
I yearn to be inspired
And for that I’ll set out to try
I’m bringing my best self
I want to know you again
Can we get to know each other again?
Here I stand,
O my homeland!
