Hush, Hush

Fro the wind of falling in a rush

Near and near is the earth to me

For touch means  loss, and I foresee

Hush, hush my one hush, hush

Nay, I mustn’t worry of their tush

Thus I have seen

All the more beauty

 I leave my world of lush

Do not think of me as accursed

For I have mere fallen

Hush, hush my love

There are other matters, far worst

We could be ne’er together, forever callin’

Hush, hush my swain, I am no longer above

Imperfections

You left me waiting in the dark

With nothing for me to grasp but your fading voice

Your breath cracked the silence with your strange remark

But when will you discern that this is your own choice

And I, I know you’ll see

How much more you can be

Don’t fret on how you appear

I’ll catch your every tear

‘Cause I love you, and all your imperfections, my dear

Do you remember the day

When we said to each other

Our hopes and dreams will stay

And all insecurities will smother

Well what happened to that day…

You have nothing to say…

Well I, I know you’ll see

How much more you can be

Don’t fret on how you appear

I’ll catch your every tear

‘Cause I love you, and all your imperfections, my dear

May you find what you need

May you hide from your fears

But know your angst will bleed

And that dismal thought clears

Stop running…

Stop fighting…

Since I, I know you’ll see

How much more you can be

Don’t fret on how you appear

I’ll wait for you here

‘Cause I love you, and all your imperfections, my dear

For Jericho, Happy Guiding.

My throat aches from holding back my tears. I couldn’t quite detect whether they were from sadness or happiness; perhaps a mixture of the two. I’ve known this day would come, but I never expected it to arrive so soon. I look at Jericho proudly sitting next to his new partner, ears perked up on the top of his broad head, inquisitive nose twitching with the intake of new scents in the air. His honey-golden eyes, loving and innocent, meet mine and instantly warms my heart. It’s as if he were assuring me that he would miss me too and everything would be all right. I drop down to his level and hug him tightly.

“You be a good boy, now,” I say. Jericho fondly licks away an escaped tear down my face. After a deep breath and a ruffle to his head, I straighten up and say goodbye to him and his new companion. Jericho happily wags his tail as the man next to him grasps the handle of the harness and voices the command, “Forward!”

He expertly obeys and confidently guides the blind man away. After a quick wave goodbye, I turn around and let the tears fall, though with a smile. These, I decided, are tears of happiness.
