Let love live

My will power is straining against years of suppressed emotions,
Crippling me on the inside I have become so numb,
Yet a distant memory is re-awoken in me,
Of a longing to let love live free in my heart,

A passionate intensity burns inside of me,
How I desire to let go and allow these feelings to grow,
To fall head over heels in love and not think twice,
To fantasise freely about letting the romance blossom,

How I long to love as if I’d never been hurt,
To trust as though I’d never been betrayed,
To cherish her as if I’d never lose her,
And how I’ve tried, oh how I’ve tried,

But then I catch a glimpse of it,
It captivates me and I am totally transfixed,
Love’s promise so abundant and so deep,
It consumes me and I can do nothing but let love live.

Let love live
