Love's Pathway

Yellow lilies
dance and sway
Away, together
Life's pathway.

Calling from afar
they say
Come away with me
To a place far away.

I follow, stumble
upon my way
Encounter red lilies
To passion - prey.

Whispers from afar 
I hear
Forget me not
I hold you dear.

Lily white
come what may
Love will always
Find a way.

What is it about you
that shakes me to the core,
Building bridges, barriers,
Building walls, breaking doors?

What is it about you,
The intensity of your gaze,
Shatters glass, crushes hearts,
Opens the floodgates?

It's nothing but a sense
of an old forgotten wound,
Buried 'neath the surface,
Protected by the womb.

It's nothing but a memory
of feelings tortured, cold,
Swept beneath the cobwebs
of the heart's stronghold.

What is it I'm feeling
as I wash away the fear?
Hope for new tomorrows,
Wisdom beyond tears.
