More Than...

By Tony DeLorger © 2013


More than beauty

imbibes my soul,

more than your gentle touch,

that soothes me so,

more than your warm embrace

that stills my fears,

its your kindness and compassion,

that quells my tears.


Your heart is a light,

in purity and direction,

always accepting life,

its demands and connections,

your understanding and wisdom,

is a healing to me,

a vision of future,

an assurance to see.


More than your body,

your blissful temptation,

your stirring of passion,

and pleasured sensations,

more than those whispers,

that set fire my soul,

more than the ecstasy,

that swallows me whole.


It's more your intention,

you selfless, loving care,

that surrenders me helpless,

in your arms, I am there,

as all I can be,

is the object of your heart,

abundantly grateful,

of your love from the start.


More than these words,

can impart my hearts plea,

that in heaven you'll find me,

and together we'll be,

in the serenity of knowing,

that love has found place,

in an eternity of giving,

in the arms of God's grace.


True love is rare, and has little to do with the physical life, rather a connection of souls, a selfless meaningful connection that cannot be broken.
