My Lover

you have known me
you know me and
you will always know me

you have loved me
you love me and
you will always love me

you were there with me
you are now here with me and
you will always be here with me

i didn't always know you
i now know you and
i want to continue knowing you

i didn't always love you
i deeply love you now and
i want to grow deeper in love with you 

i wasn't always there with you
i am now here with you and
i anticipate being there with you

you caress my soul
you protect my heart
you desire my best

i adore you
i honor you
i worship you

please my lord
don't ever let this fire
flicker into a flame

keep me as your desire
as i long to do the same
