Even then

IMG_5351

Through my tears and pain
I call out
To the god of her faith
To take her pain
Her sorrow
To give them to me
To make them mine
I swear to him
Upon my soul
She will never be treated like that again
A voice within says “Never?”
I swear
“Upon your soul?”
I pledge upon it
“Why?”
I want her in my life
“Always?”
Yes
No matter what
“No matter what?”
Crippled or crazy
“You would care for her?”
Yes
Broken or diseased or dying
“You would have her?”
Yes
I would have her no matter her condition
No matter her state
No matter what
“You would love her?”
I do love her
With all that I am
“And if she could not return your love?
Even then?”
Yes
Even then I would love her

I am given my answer in silence
