Unpossessed

Despite every moment that has come before,
Your love is not expected, but earned,
With each devoted act I do,
I am drawing closer to you;
But tomorrow’s promised no one,
So I will love you for today,
Though I think about our future,
And I very deeply want you to stay,
I want to say I appreciate you,
Every tenderness you show me,
We fell in love like we fall asleep,
All at once after nodding off slowly,
I want you to hold me, console me,
Because through all my strife,
You stay beside me with every stride;
So much pride, so wilful,
Turn me down but never in a dismissal;
Every epistle could be whittled to sing your praise,
As we go from one movement to the next phrase,
As we move from this moment to the next phase.
