On Being Lovable

Love me, all of me
Hold me tenderly
That place in my heart
That needs to be healed

It’s been so long since I’ve heard
The soft sound of I Love You
Forever since a tender touch
Since warm lips brushed my neck

Kiss me softly,
The way I dreamed
Sweet and soft your breath a gentle
Brush against my eyelids

Look deeply into my eyes
Can you see
The uncertainty in my soul
Of love from a new perspective

Learning a new way,
without a teacher
To accept the new feeling,
Without reservation

Will the fear fall away with the touch
Will I be able to release the I love you
Guarded for so long
Will the feelings return

I dream of the moment
The recognition of the truth
That I remain alive
That I remain lovable
