  I gaze as the moon shimmers across his naked body
lost in the thought of who he is
and how blessed I am he's in my life,
And how it is this passion is hotter than it was in the beginning.
This man lying in my bed
emanating strength and power
boldly going where no man has gone before
taking a chance on me and
loving me totally, unconditionally, wholly.

Oh! Those who have no clue
and those who mock the ties that bind
and those who say their love is real
without those little pieces of paper.

It is far easier to cohabitate than it is to
swear eternal allegiance before God,
mean it by fighting for it,
tearing out those little things
that work to destroy forever.

Hah! You fool yourself and you do not know
the passions that come from total
and complete
founded on a Word
far stronger than even the sweetest “I love you but…”

You can not know
what you have not known
and I do,
I do
feel so sorry for you.
