in your debt

I hear your voice a lot:
it still rings like no other;

and though others may appear,
none of them will ever hold a candle
to the fire that is you;

I say that once, now, forever.

I'm not nearly as dumb as when
you found me:
and you could have taken advantage of that,
but you didn't;

I was oblivious,
but you treated me better
than any woman before you,
and likely any others who are
crazy enough in my short future;

and for that,
I shall always be in your debt.

January 18, 2009, for She Who Cannot Be Forgotten.
