Until Now

What did I want

I wanted nothing

What did I do

I did nothing

What did I say

I spoke nothing

And the wind blew

And my hair grew long

And grey

And then

One day

I spoke the words

I had sought

For many years before

To give love

To be love

And to be sweet

In being given away

I was cold

Until now

The warmth is back

In my fingers

And heart
