Robin's Realm



Do you not understand?

Oh can you not see?


I have fears in many ways

Many ways that have overtake me


I say I see

But do I really?

But I too say

I am not controlling

All my love I give

To you unconditionally


Is it in his mind she asks?

Those fears she cannot see

Why does she struggle so?

When wanting to have them shown to her

In a place she can see


Did she have her fears as well?

Were they hidden deep within?

And not yet to be spoken


 A love was found by them

So much shared

In such a short span of time


Can you hear yet?

Can you see?

There are fears

There are fears within me


She must have looked away

Without even hearing the whispering of the tree


It has to come to this

For I am not being heard

You do not understand


You proclaim your love

Your love that is for me


I need the time and the space

For you and me to understand


I must see the answers

And hear themselves for me


That is what she asks

That he truly search within

It is not I you fear he says

It is something from within


I may be sitting here away from you

Crying out in pain and fear stating

I don’t understand


But as the light of each new day starts

My ears are open

Open from within


I do! I do Dave!

I do understand


Does it make the pain any less?

Sometimes I ask

Had only back then

Why did I not

Why did I not understand back then?


My love for you is so deep

It always has been
