    (May I) Grow With You?

    May I “grow” with you
    Grow wide
    Grow old
    Grow true (with you)

    Whatever “together” people do

    May I live off the pulsations of your CLOSEness

    ~ For those who don’t get the gist of what closeness means

    May I siphon enough of your energies
    To please me
    So that
    When others see me
    They know that I am pleased

    May I “grow” with you
    Grow tall
    Grow long
    Grow new (with you)

    May I wake to morning’s sunrays
    Presenting another day
    …another moment
    With you at
    My side

    May I
    Slip/slide
    Along the corridors of time
    Colliding with
    “Our time,” and
    “Forever more”
    Coz opportunity and persistence
    Has made you…all mine

    May I grow (with you)

    May I take the tender hands of father time
    And make you MINE
    For an eternity

    May I grow “with you”
    Grow true
    Grow wise
    Grow use to you

    May I grow to oneness
    With you
    …grow to LOOK like YOU
    In early morning’s hue
    As dew drops envelop me

    It’s not that I need you
    Or can’t live without you
    Nor am I “addicted”
    To you

    It’s just that I love you
    And want to be
    With you

    To discover EXCITEMENT
    At the wink of an eye

    To LOVE
    Completely
    And never ask why

    (I want to)
    Grow with you
    Grow wide
    Grow old
    Grow true (with you)​

    See, this kinda talk is what Bill Withers was talkin' bout!

    "I wanna spread the news that if it feels this good gettin' used
    Oh, just keep on usin' me...until you use me up!"

    today...

    ...it's about setting the stage for "forever," and letting her know that "never" isn't a part of our vocabulary...coz "every" moment i share with her is like "another dream" come true. THANK YOU for reading, $$RICHMAN$$.
