when love knocks at my door
I open the door
I let it in
I welcome it
I offer it refuge
I give it my all
I offer it my soul
my thirst is quenched by it
my life is revived by it
it digs deeply
into the heart of me
the longing begins
the pain begins
the bliss begins
the joy begins
I want to run from it
I want to hide from it
I want to shrink from it
I fear it
that it will destroy my mind
yet I am immersed in it
overcome by it
I cannot move
I am caught in it's power
the joy and wonder of it
has lifted me up
freed me from the prison of self
I must face it
I must embrace it
surrender to it
at times it is hardship
at times it is clumsy
at times it is awkward
at times our anger
to be control
at times we hurt one another
we are so deep
in this feeling
in this experience
so close together
unable to be apart
together as one
This is us
This is you and I
together as one
one heartbeat
The music of our essence
rings in spiraling harmony
The sky seems so close
Our heads pierce the clouds
Have we grown so big
Are we giants now
The love between us
increases us
We are tall and expansive
our hearts roar like thunder
Our eyes like moons
shine into each other
We take refuge within the soul
This is us
truly it is
We ride through the night
on words of silk
that pour as music
unlock our minds
birds sing sweetly
we listen to their mantra
we are bathed in joy
wrapped in innocence
our beings bright and shiny
we flow together
like heavenly wine
this is us
surrendered to our love
surrendered to our love
surrendered to our love
