First Stray


Gods morning broke
It’s a new day
bade good bye and set off for home
not to look back at love anymore
when I first strayed, leaving the path of love
divine love set its beauty on me
I fret with anxiety
My spirit sag and sway
Admirable expressions of sympathy offered by you
Which I am firmly convinced that I should love you
and what was once a source of pain
has now become love
having shed all discomfort and biding sensation of pain
now inflamed beyond measure with lofty and noble love
far loftier and nobler
I know out of fear or shame
you conceal the flames of passion within your fragile breast
and hidden love worn on your sleeve
I bag out my heart
And leap beyond faith to love and please you
and love we shall have forever
