    You Were Loved

    I have a love song in my spirit.
    I want to teach it to your heart so when it beats I can hear it sing every lyric
    I want to replace your teeth with 32 sunrays
    So every time you smile, it's like a brand new day
    What more can I say?
    I just want to love you.
    Now I don't mean that "Your wish is my command, tell me what I gotta do to please you" kind of love
    Or that "You need to leave your man because he doesn't buy you what you deserve to be bought" kind of love
    Or that "Let me whip this **** on you so I can bust your back out" kind of love.
    Nah: I'm talking about let's look into each other's eyes and have a conversation without words
    Let's take a nap on the beach and have the waves lull us to sleep
    ****: I'm talking about let's take hands and let our celestial selves break free of their terrestrial prison
    And scatter across the shy like white light passed through a prism
    And let's fly_____ so High________
    Across the infinite sky like migrating birds
    There's no destination, so who cares who gets there first
    I want to love you with the passion of the drowning man
    Who's fighting death
    To get to the surface to breathe than very next breath
    I want to love you with the determination of that seed
    That grows, and grows, and grows until it breaks through the concrete.
    I want to love you with the intensity of the 554 billion tons of hydrogen being turned into 550 billion tons of helium
    With that remaining 4 billion tons of helium being used to burn that hydrogen creating sunspots and sunrays
    Which make light for sight and bright sunny days
    I want to tattoo my name on your soul
    So when you're 5000 years old
    You'll know that 5000 years ago, you were loved.
