A poem #20 – I do not do this for me

I do not do this for me,
my feelings, my thoughts, my fears,
are irrelevant in the scheme of things.
I do not do this for sycophantic gratification,
nor do I do it for mutual admiration.
I do not do this for wealthy gains,
nor do I do it to ease my pains.
I do not do this for me,
no, that is not why I’m here, down on one knee.
I do this
only for you,
and to see that beautiful smile rise like the sun across your face.
