One Year Ago
When I recall one year ago my earth
had you and I was ignorant of this
I'm awed I almost lost this precious truth
I'm scared how close it came to being missed.
Just think of what we would have lost my love
The love we never found would disappear
Take flight and soar to heaven as a dove
Just waiting for it's chance to reappear.
My soul's sharp opening to your sweet touch
Was quick and painful, hard won and intense
Worth everything I owed and paid,
but much gained: wonderful unfettered emotions.
Since you are in the world my soul's set free
To catch your soul and keep it safe with me.
