Never Dreamed

Could I forget
even momentarily?
Could I look at my own eyes
touch my skin
search my fingertips for traces
and not see you?

--Noel Ganter

From those who have
been given much
much will be asked

Forgive me--I never dreamed
I would be asked
for this

In giving you up
I sacrifice myself--like Abraham
a price I never thought to pay
