Dear Love of This Only Life I Know,
To Win My Heart you’ve got to:
Give more than you take,
Be perfection, without being a saint.
Come beating down my door like a violent
And wash away my pain like the gentlest
You’ve got to lose all the colors
of the sky & sea
And come searching, searching, seeking
to find them again in me.
You need to be the structure in my process
And be the progress in my darkest darkness.
Be stronger that the wind that bends tall trees
With a touch softer than the mellow summer breeze.
Be brave, be bold, be earnest, be fun,
Know magic, know purpose, know passion, know One.
You’ve got to turn me on with your efficiency
And have the strength to set me free.
Hold me tightly to your heart,
Make me believe we will never part.
Worship my body and savor my soul,
Share with me the quietest moments you know.
Tell me your secrets & listen to mine,
Read me sweet love poems, call me divine.
Be certain, be persistent, consistent, and kind
turn off my insecurities and turn on my mind.
I won’t settle for less than all this and more,
all of you: all your heart, all your soul, all your core.
So find me, tease me, use me, please me,
take me down, bring me up, help me to see.
