His Job Was Not To Be With You Forever

Ali Kaukas

He sacrificed himself for you
in this life
so you could learn how you deserve to be loved
his job
was to love the soles of your feet that have never felt the ground
his job
was to love your lungs that had been drinking water
not knowing they needed air
his job
was to give your body the rest and the release of pleasure it had given up on
his job
was to allow you to feel the rise and fall and shudder as you experienced the joy within making love
love
love
not sex
his job
was to awaken the parts of your spirit that were not aware they were sleeping
his job
was to pull you out from under the bed
and see your whole light
his job
was to remind you that loving you is not a burden
but everything he was born on this planet to do
for his hands were forged to hold you
each inch of your flesh and red beating heart
with soft might
his job
was not to be with you forever
no
his job was to be the one who loved you so sweetly and so deeply that you are unable to deny the love you denied yourself
your whole life. TC mark
