If I believe that you somehow exceed my hopes and dreams
If I have safely elbowed through my fears, my grief; it seems
Perhaps we might begin to know that joy that we desire
For you and I a pledge of love is all that we require
If, resting in your arms, I find the peace I need so much,
And if you feel my tender madness there within your touch,
Then let us shout out loud the love we’ve come to understand,
Or else, perhaps, instead of shouts, you simply hold my hand.
