Nobody told me how to navigate this kind of love We will be explorers, pioneers in a wild frontier We can stake our claim– everything new and nervous and blushing Something out of the books I’ve read. How could it be any different when it’s love? Only–we wouldn’t be exchanging rings in front of an altar But solemn vows we would whisper to each other, Within the walls of our paradise
Thrust into the limelight with my words, I didn’t ask for that but it gave me you. No denying it drew us to each other– like a moth to a flame And here’s the truth: No matter what happens, I can only be grateful for it has shown me how much I am capable of loving not just anyone, but someone worth my poetry.
The night is the sea and our love is a ship, I am not afraid of the darkness Because you are with me and I am with you, always. Fear is an illusion, separation a necessity For the growth of souls trying to remember– What we came back here for, Every lesson we’re here to learn To bring us a step closer to union within and each other. Nothing has ever been more real except– This cord that binds us, And we would die with the truth that we are each other’s home.
