    hold me close
    and I'll keep you warm
    shower me with love
    and I'll endure the storm

    take care of my heart
    as if it were your own
    let me into your life
    and i'll introduce you
    to full grown
    puppy love

    we can run the entire gamut
    of bedroom antics
    our affection is a sport
    hugging turns to tussling
    fussing turns to cussing
    making up turns to spooning
    and then she gets
    forked

    stuck like the passing days
    and calendars
    that can't keep track
    of this timeless
    love

    minutes may tick
    impatient seconds may tock
    but...
    we never were confined
    to the hands on the clock
    or stopwatches
    we've gone so digital
    outsiders can't seem to
    stop watching

    the temporary is in jeopardy
    forever is our vice
    we rehabilitate on keepsakes
    gettin high off each other
    for the rest of our lives

    her body gives me speed bumps
    i'm ready to move too fast
    she's the object of all my affection
    so lets slow down
    and make our grass
    green

    lets accent the kitchen
    with red
    and upgrade the baseboards
    lets shop for pots and pans
    at contemporary furniture stores
    not walmart or tarjhey

    she is my feng shui
    my ying can't leave that yang alone
    I put the luther to her vandross
    instead of playing house
    we stay home
    and play grooves by candlelight
    gospel on sunday mornings
    and jazz at nightfall

    now we're dancing through life
    to the cadence of love
    2 stepping through the night
    to the heavens above
    lost in the moment
    in a period of fun
    if i could describe it in a sentence
    it would end with shift(&)1
    ...an exclamation point

    Hello Nittygrit...

    :wave:
    I'm glad I came back for a second read, because I
    thought I responded to this after I read it yesterday.
    Anywhooo, my favorite lines...

    Requesting what is needed so the other can receive the best of us.

    The balances of giving and receiving in a relationship.

    I enjoyed you as I always do.

    Be Blessed!
