Now I love you

  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.
