No more talk of darkness,
forget these wide-eyed fears;
I’m here, nothing can harm you,
my words will warm and calm you.
Let me be your freedom,
let daylight dry your tears;
I’m here, with you, beside you,
to guard you and to guide you.
Let me be your shelter,
let me be your light;
you’re safe, no one will find you,
your fears are far behind you.
Then say you’ll share with me one love, one lifetime;
let me lead you from your solitude.
Say you need me with you, here beside you,
anywhere you go, let me go too,
…that’s all I ask of you.
Love me, that’s all I ask of you.
I was listening to this absolutely beautiful song on the way to work this morning…thinking about how romantic these words are that Raoul sings (Patrick, baby! ). Then I started realizing I already have someone pursuing me with words that “turn my head with talk of summertime”. I know this is all cheezy, but sometimes a girl needs to realize that that love we so long for is already completely consuming us…we just have to get out of thinking about ourselves to notice. I just thank God for people already in my life that love me and care about me without me having to ask.
Test me, O LORD , and try me, examine my heart and my mind; for your love is ever before me, and I walk continually in your truth. Psalm 26:2-3
