Love Song

my heart-song carries
a tune of soaring joy
a searing melody that
caresses
with tingling fingertips
along the nape of my neck
calling my soul out
into the world

this love
is not
what they told me

you are not my other half
or my better
you do not complete me
or make me whole
you are not what I was looking for

you are the mirror that helped me see

I do not need another half
because I am complete
and whole as I am
with everything I was seeking
held in my own heart
all along

you helped me see myself
and know myself
and love myself

so that I could share myself
wholly and completely
with whoever I choose

I choose you

you are not what I was looking for –
what I found in you
is so much more
than I ever knew to seek

my heart-song carries
a tune of soaring joy
and my soul thrills
at the sound of your heart-song
playing in time with mine

a melody all its own
a harmony when we join
a love song to quiet the stars

For my eternal valentine. Thank you.x
