How can I grasp such a mind

that thinks so fully

about the important aspects of the world

while I am stuck wholly

in my own head unconnected

to such wildness and beauty

that is your mind your smile

to reach that level of complexity

is to fully understand the self

of which there is no clear reflection

no recognition of entire intensity

nor the determination of your direction

unachievable I think in my life

I must gain your gentle tenacity

to live in wild and pure felicity
