    i discovered love once
    on the pages of dreams
    and in the ink of my pen
    and still i couldn't grasp
    that THAT love was mine;

    i held tight to dreams by
    writing passion into hearts
    and joy into pain and love
    into places where the beat
    of the heart was unheard;

    and still i waited for love
    along the road of life as
    if the prodigal son would
    return from their journey
    to my arms open wide;

    but when i saw love near
    i would hide in distress for
    i knew that if i let it come
    close it would be me who
    had to learn to receive;

    so what do i do?
    do i stand the shadows of
    hope writing how love should
    be and yet never experience
    it my life as solid evidence?

    or do i take the risk of so
    many more before me and
    drop my guard, my past, my
    pains, my depth, my weak,
    my strong and listen clearly
    to the words of my FATHER...

    "Write What I Give You, and
    I Will Give You What You Write."

    To dream of love is one thing, to actually look it in the eye, another. I liked the way you flowed with this.
