As first I loved you longingly, from far, desiring.
You pulled me from my sea of want.
In gratitude I clung to you, possessing.
You disappeared within my arms, vanishing into my heart.
I loved you in remembrance, seizing certainty.
Hidden deep beneath my breath, you filled me. Still, you do.
I loved you easily, without a care.
Then glancing toward the inward garden once, I saw you resting in your favorite place
and I forgot myself. My heart at last went out to you, adoring, and delighting.
Now I simply love you. Just for you.
