the truth is
that i lied,
to put your gentle
worried mind
to rest,

for it was
the only
valid solution,
i garnered you were
looking for,

and you smiled
relieved,
as did
that knowing
angel above,

and i walked away
with my truth
unsaid,
held within
but forever untarnished,

honestly polished
to shine eternal,
with a lie
exchanged
for a worthy smile,

and that
my dear,
is what
is love.
