The Key

Tags: love, devotion

finding love again

You said "I love you.. what does that mean"?
Your voice quivering in doubt.
Lost and confused as you ever have been,
Not knowing what your love was about..

Sorrow and regret surrounded by guilt,
Your feelings unsure and kept hidden.
The strongest bond that ever was built,
Now weak and broken and held forbidden.

Pushing away what once was held dear,
An occasional memory stirred.
Comfort and love has now turned to fear,
Of hearing again those three little words.

Closing your eyes you still see love's faces,
A Mardi Gras of all your emotions.
Without even trying your heart still feels traces,
Of a time you once pledged your devotion.

Somewhere an ash is ready to flame,
The heat of your love wasn't lost.
Smoldering deep you still feel the same,
And want it back no matter the cost.

"I love you" you said no quivering voice,
Together you want us to always be.
"I love you" you said without any choice,
To your heart he always held the key.
