This is a poem I wrote in 2015. I imagine all of my poetry set to music but I am rarely able to come up with my own tunes. This poem I imagine set to the tune of Thank You by Led Zeppelin.
Sometimes I stay up at night
Thoughts in my head they play and fight
And I wonder how it is I know
That I'm sure I love you so
What if it turns out I've lied?
What if this feeling dies?
And when I can't decide
I hold my fears deep inside
So many days have passed, so long
So many risks, can I take them on?
Shall I hang around when you want me gone?
Abandon you in the middle of my song?
So much hurt of so many kinds
And no solutions around for me find
Where can I turn, no one to help
You know I want no one else
Whatever now can I do?
To be sure my love is true?
It seems there's always more to learn
Another layer down below that churns
Until then I'll do what I can
I'll always be your loyal man
And so I choose to love you so
And this is how I know
My name is Dan. I am an author, artist, explorer, and contemplator of subjects large and small.
