Jonathan Arnold

Love's Commitment

My heart's struggle
Begins to settle slowly
Reveling in knowledge of
Deepening intimacy with you

The One who my innermost
Heart lies bare and cherished
The One who provides comfort
Of powerful primal attachment

The stunning beauty
When we are together
Our mingling passions
Widening our twining

Lives on in me always
Deepest of truths
Sustaining me with sensual
Knowings of love

A haven for the pain and hurt
The feelings known and heard
Being supported in every way
Calm amidst the moods of my life

This is the choice of maturity
For comes times needs must wait
And responsibility and commitment
Overwhelm all that there is of now

And so much so much
Left unexperienced
In multitude of shrines to the
Indulgence of the senses

But here is the place
Where I for you
And you for I
Have chosen to give

All of the I and the you
And the We for all our
Yearnings and needs
Wants and desires

And the feeling of peace
And knowing excitement
As we get ever closer
To doing for each other
What most can be done
One lover for the other

For it seems that it is not the many
That bring the fruition all of the wants
But rather the focused path
Of the true only one for always
So it is, that for now and forever
You are my only wonderful lover.
