You Go Gentle

You go gentle into everything
Soft smile at the corner of your lips
Tea, fleece-lined hoodies, muted green
You make caring look so easy
A tilt of the head when you see someone upset
You make beauty look so casual
The curve of your back over the off-key piano,
The perfect dance of your fingers over a song
You make perfection look so attainable
Shadow of your eyelashes when you look down
The way your eyes look joyful when you laugh
You are full of colour
You’re all ocean and lupin and crimson,
Mahogany and something faded
You go gentle into everything
