    I am naked before you
    open
    heart laid bare

    here, take it
    examine it again

    rethink parts misunderstood
    I am patient

    Search quickly
    or take an eternity

    either way, I am patient

    should you become discouraged
    & the journey no longer holds
    appeal for you

    I will not face you with tears
    no
    nor cause your heart
    to feel remorse

    For I am what
    I have chosen to be

    & now,
    I choose to be
    With you...
