Please allow me to open you up
Remove the succulent loveliness of you from your shell
Caress the sweetness of your clams
Counting the gold and watching the sugar plum fairies dance in your eyes
As I draw you into my warm, protective arms.
I will give you everything you seek if you will but let me in
Into your stony, resistant heart, mind and body.
All the gates will open with the right words
But you must speak veritably from the heart
Or else I will know you for a phony, out only for the money.
Climb into my bed when the heart overflows
Let the river run: love is wet
So is birth, death, a good workout and fine wine to ease nerves.
Come with me on the wondrous journey of life
When hungry, eat; when thirsty, drink; when hurt, console;
When happy, rejoice with me for I am only there for you
Because I want to be, because I love you.
