You’ve taken so much from me:

the ability to wish
hair-trigger responses
wee-hour thoughtfulness
hyperacute senses
the habit of hopelessness.

All I have left is this:

everything I might have wished for
peace and understanding of my world
deep, restful sleep in the night
perception of beauties everywhere
joy in the present and hope for the future.
