    In all my lustful splendor
    Can you sustain me?
    Can you withstand the power of my love?
    Can you snuggle within its warmth like hand to glove?

    Can you?

    In all my mournful splendor
    Can you comfort me?
    Can you lift my spirits when they are down?
    Can you support the weight of my sometimes sagging crown?

    Can you?

    In all my awful splendor
    Can you soothe me?
    Can you calm my fiercest storms?
    Can you dissipate the raging wind before it forms?

    Can you?

    In all my beautiful splendor
    Can you behold me?
    Can you peer upon the essence of my core?
    Can you understand the secrets of my ancient lore?
    Can you invade the fortress around my heart's door?
    Can you brave to view the heights to which I dream to soar?
    Can you conquer all these things and still hunger for more?

    Can you?

    Can you know me, accept me,
    Believe in me, and want me
    In all my splendor?

    Can you?

    In all my splendor?

    the responsibilities of love...

    I’ve searched my mind for an answer
    To questions posed in all your splendor

    Can I?

    I’ve contemplated the responsibility accompanying your words
    In considering your quest, I’ve imagined your surrender

    Can I?

    In ALL your beauty
    That I’ve beheld
    The raging storms
    And battles I’ll quell
    The warmth and sincerity
    Of your touch
    ALL those things
    A couple needs so much

    I’ll be that rock
    Upon which much can stand
    Give moral support
    Offer a helping hand
    In times of crisis
    When your needs are great
    I’ll lift you up
    On time…never late

    Can I withstand the power
    Of a love such as you
    The answer is yes
    But I’d rather show you

    Will you marry me?! LOL! just kidding!

    But, this is another KEEPER for me, Baller! You definitely have a silver tongue! And if you've got a heart of gold to match it, then whoever you decide to "SHOW" your love is a blessed woman!

    Thank you so much for these beautiful words!
