What you made of me

Music tumbled from her pretty lips and when she spoke the language of the universe

 stars sighed in unison

There is a place of peace

There is a place of joy

A place away from loneliness

A place away from pain

That place is next to you

A secret garden

Where black and white becomes a colorful place

Of loving, kisses, touching, caressing,



There with you and only you

Cares of the world melting away

Anger and fear are not allowed

Prejudice cannot enter

A place where two hearts beat as one

A place where two souls are interwoven,

Touching the inner-place of one another

A place that I long to come back to again and again

A place of sweet abandon

A place next to you

What sound was that?

I turn away, into the shaking room.

What was that sound that came in on the dark?

What is this maze of light it leaves us in?

What is this stance we take,

To turn away and then turn back?

What did we hear?

It was the breath we took when we first met.

Listen. It is here



You gave light to my soul

You helped me to be whole

I have felt love for you before

And it will be more and more,

Who taught me how to love.

Please, forever keep me near

When you are old and grey and full of sleep,

And nodding by the fire, take down this book,

And slowly read, and dream of the soft look

Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;

How many loved your moments of glad grace,

And loved your beauty with love false or true,

But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,

And loved the sorrows of your changing face
