the Love

the love you want

the love you need

the love you deserve

I may not be able

deep is this love

unique in every way

as it sits in the stars

I wish I could be

seeking what you think you saw

weighs upon these hearts

leaving moments unprotected

I am only me

we have planted roots

in rows beside pain and laughter

rain, sun and space we must trust

your hand in mine
