The only thing keeping me from you is time.
What more could I ask for on this lonely night.
This city cannot contain me.
Nowhere have I found the place that brings me closer to you.
Even with you lying beside me.
Still I need you closer.
It brings me to tears
Because I know you are in the infinite.
I live in such a finite world.
I cannot fight sleep enough just for another encounter with you.
I cannot get enough of you.
I only see you.
And I wish I could forget to breathe before I lose sight of you.
It is who you are that makes me desire you.
There is so much of you that I have yet to see
But believe you-me
Relentlessly, I will seek.
Knowing I will always find
Because you have promised me so.
And oh so long will I run.
I will run miles and miles and miles.
Do you see me now?
These tears I shed for you.
I can’t hardly contain myself.
How else do you undo love?
Because I am undone
Make me blind to the seen so I may see what is unseen.
Shut my ears that I might hear you.
Close my heart from the outside in
So you might heal it from the inside-outward flowing.
Ask me to dance with you.
I promise you I have practiced every step.
But if I slip, I know that you will catch me.
No one will ever know
Because your love for me is effortless and graceful.
You always take the lead
But if I forget and take a step.
I will always come back and follow.
