Surrender to Love

surrender-to-love

I lost myself within your eyes,
Our souls entwined much to my surprise
I fell in awe of your wondrous face
a land of eternal beauty and grace;
My restless spirit and stirring soul
seeking freedom, yet so out of control;
A shelter from the storm in you I found
A kindred spirit, to mine eternally bound.
Everything about you so hauntingly familiar:
Our minds in tune, experiences so similar;
The words you spoke came straight from my heart;
What was yours or mine, I could never tell apart.

Your soul mirrored back the love that I felt
In a blissful reality for a while we dwelt;
But old fears and faces found us anew
Love full of hope, now rejected withdrew.
Not knowing why; our souls withered in pain
In an immense void left by love lost again;
Yet undoubtedly here in my poor bleeding heart
Your reflection stayed: unaffected, unharmed.

Sometimes I find myself giving way to memories
Your image, like the sun, forever in my reveries;
The sky, always blue, reminds me of your eyes
You’re the sound the wind makes when something in me dies;
Your love the perpetual shadow that hovers over me,
suspended in space, forcing my captured heart to flee.

But in time came the acceptance of what I knew all along:
the simplest truth of this love so REAL and strong;
In surrender came the relief I so desperately needed,
As to God in my heart I finally pleaded:
May He fill me with this Love if such is His will,
If there’s a plan for me; this I seek to fulfil.
My mind emptied of loss, of wanting control
I release all which keeps me tied to the old.
Fully surrendered, like the wind gently bending the trees,
God’s heavenly Mercy brought me down to my knees;
As I yield to my Creator I humbly touch the floor;
As your love comes to me like the waves to the shore.

There is peace in surrender; in submission, there is joy;
A promise, a certainty God wants us to enjoy;
Of things that are meant to be, when it’s only you and me,
Those dreams we once shared… then become reality.
You are the nearest to Home that I’ve ever been,
You live in my blood; always felt, never seen.
And the Heaven I tasted there in your breath,
 May as well haunt me, out of reach, ‘til my death:
For I know no one else will take me to paradise;
For you’re the only One with forever in his eyes.

So let me take your hands; those hands so unsure
 We will rise in this Love so sublime and pure;
 I will reignite the fire inside you, show you what it is to be desired,
What it is like to be God-bound, in love eternally rewired.
