this untrue thing

I will take
my chances
loving You;
risk being thought
a fool for believing
in a Love Whose
only proof is flowers
and babies; mountains
and seas, and people
who smile and give
their hearts and bless others,
even as they themselves approach death.

I will take
my chances
loving You;
for even if nothing
I have believed is true,
my life is better for it,
and this untrue thing has
saved me a thousand thousand times.

~Cheryl Anne
