Intimate honesty

When I think of you with pleasure and contentment
disregarding all your lacks and wants,
your vanity and lack of human knowledge,
I can but adore you nonetheless
because of all that is so good in you,
your lacks and wants and weaknesses,
your over-sensitivity and bleeding heart,
your limitation in your intact world of beauty,
which however could redeem civilization
with its purity, simplicity and honesty.
I will not let you go, I will not drop you,
since our friendship is a higher thing than ordinary love,
transcending it and leaving it behind;
since there is really such a thing
as love that lasts forever,
being a continuous wonder story
carrying on in constantly new chapters
from one lifetime to another
constantly expanding parallel to that eternity
which can not have an end since it exists.
