I Can Make Believe That YouÂre Here
by Amanda L Marron
you are all around me
in the ocean, the sky, the breeze
my devotion is rejuvenated
with every moment
i have arrived, come once more
to traverse the heavens with you
i feel your intensity as i'm raised toward the apex
keep your tender arms around me love
because i am scared of falling
you hold me dearly to prove you will shield me
how could i pacify such a free, wild spirit?
i could never bind you to me
you look at me and read my mind
you say, "you won't bind me in my own home.
for my home is within your heart, my beloved.
and you will one day know my love for you."
you gently kiss me to assure this vow
"now leave me, for i do not want you to glimpse my tears."
i gaze at you, my strong passionate mate
my own eyes spilling tears
you kiss me once more, then graciously withdraw
i land on earth with a smile
but yet a desire for the time we meet again
