Loving you broke my youth
in my naivety – understanding, like light poured through
In my pain my soul burst with desire,
words which heaved in locked spaces – now free
for my faith in you raged like a fire.
sadness in my stupidity is strewn –
like weeds amongst the fields half sown.
You gave me birth into the powers that be.
You gave me vision where once I could not see
and my whole in you I now pledge to combine
even when apart forever entwined
