Love Song ~

Whenever I say 
I love you, it may 
be that I'm conceding 
my own sense of needing 
your touch and your nearness 
the joy of your dearness 
and would have you stay 
close by me each day -

I love you means "yes" 

I now must confess 
without you life's lonely 
and barren - for only 
the warmth of your giving 
in love makes the living 
of life full and free 
and all it can be - 

What promises glean 
from what the words mean?
For comfort and sharing 
For pleasures and caring 
For intimate knowing 
A blessed bestowing 
The words are a plea:
"I need you for me!"

  7. When love happens, one is increased, not just oneself anymore --irrational, frightening, wonderful and true. You express this incomparably well.
