As first I loved you longingly, from far, desiring.
You pulled me from my sea of want.
In gratitude I clung to you, possessing.
You disappeared within my arms,
vanishing into my heart.
I loved you in remembrance,
Hidden deep beneath my breath, you filled me.
Still, you do.
I loved you easily, without a care.
Then glancing toward the inward garden once,
I saw you resting in your favorite place
and I forgot myself. My heart at last
went out to you, adoring, and delighting.
Now I simply love you.
Just for you.
