The Greatest Honor

It is a great honor to hear
"I love you"
I like you
your heart
your soul
your body
You make me happy
You fulfill my desires
You heal my wounds
or addictions
A greater honor is to hear
"please forgive me"
I saw myself through you
I saw something beautiful
I want to change
to become what I saw
Please give me time
accept me
hold me
and love me
The greatest honor is to hear
"please forgive me"
for the second time
you taught me already once
I want to learn more
You are a mirror
I want to keep looking in
teach me

When you hear it, be alarmed:
in front of you stands another mirror
in which you will look many times
which you must respect
with the greatest honor
