Bound by your love

When I fear being lost

I know that you will find me

A tracker, navigator and compass

To my troubled, wavering soul

Seek and I shall find – you said

And there you were, waiting

With words of warming comfort

Ready to be my guiding ranger

You offered me a rock

On which to build my home

So here I am, receiving shelter

From the ceaseless raging storm

You promised me eternal Sun

To nurture my inner strength

I’ve found a shoulder to lean on

You rise each day, to give me hope

Most of all you’ve followed me

Through lofty mountains and

The turbulence of turning tides

Through it all, I’ve seen your smile

Now I know, I’d do it all over again

Just to be one with you…

  1. This!
    This right here!
    Girl you got Gwin and Lady G fighting over the keyboard!

    Chevvy, like one of the other commenters said, there are no words. There’s no way to express how beautiful this poem is.

    I simply CANNOT!

    1. Whoa!, Girlfriend, you just done knocked me off my feet. Ain’t nobody as exuberant as you! See, you’ve even got me changing my accent. Yes, and ask me what am I doing on the blog – I ain’t supposed to be here. Anyway, I thank you most graciously and humbly for your compliment. And since I mentioned the song, I might as well play it for you. I have a girlfriend that knows that she and I must get down when this song plays – come join the party girl!

      2. I guess,I keep feeling that the creative space is where I belong and currently managing the conflict within myself when I still have to earn money.But, I’ll sort it out – no doubt.
