All That Matters

You’re here, sweet one
And that’s all that matters

You think you have to be someone
Do something, go somewhere
But there’s only ever this
And there’s only ever you

This is all You ever wanted:
The mere fact of my presence
My sheer existence, nothing more
Whatever my shape
Whatever the skin I’m in
Whichever side of any line I’m on
All the rest irrelevant
I realise that now

All – all – that matters
Is that you’re here, sweet one.

Yes, yes, I’ll come
I always knew I would
But had no idea how to start

Now, tentatively, I begin
Each step tiny, vulnerable
Faltering, always allowing
For the possibility of falling back

Yet the movement arising within
Knows its own way home
And has no need of a guide

Love beyond imagining
