Yes, I will

Yes, I will

Wait for the warmth of your breath

As you whisper in my ear

Calling my name.

Yes, I’m ready

To sip wine from your harvest

Tasting the soil and human toil

As you kiss my lips

Yes, I’m coming

With the river’s great rush

Feeling it’s caress on my skin

As I take all of you in

Yes, I promise

That I’ll watch the blush with you

Of sunrise and sunsets

As your fire fuels my flame

Yes, I must

Breathe the crisp fresh fragrance

Of your mountains and forests

As I lie down with you

Yes, I know

All your cracks and fault lines

Still I see the beauty in you

Yes, I love you all the same


What’s love got to do with it?

When you spend a lifetime

calling out my name

seeing me just the way I am

midst the cobweb’s spiral

What’s love got to do with it?

When we switched roles to reverse

and you played the nurse

when you let me run freely

trusting that I would return

What’s love got to with it?

When you pressed the wrong key

and the music played out of tune

those hard knocks of life

when I welcomed you back in

What’s love got to do with it?

When I take my shades off

and look up at the sun

I see you standing there

It becomes so very clear–

What love’s got to do with it.
