This Is Love - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Only you can take me,
To love...
And keep me there.
I am so aware,
Of where I am...
With you.
This I know,
Only you can take me,
To love.

Only you can take me,
And make my heart...
Rejoice.
Your voice alone I hear,
When you are near...
And it is clear,
We're together to love.

Nothing I will do,
To make that go away.
Nothing I could wish,
To borrow from a dream.
Nothing I could say,
Would I have this another way...
Without you.
Or me together.

Only you can take me,
To love...
And keep me there.
I am so aware,
Of where I am...
With you.
This I know,
Only you can take me,
To love.

It is true with you,
This is love.
And only you...
Can take me there.

You alone,
Can take my heart to love.
And keep me there.
I am so aware,
Of where I am with you.
Only you,
Can take me to love.
It is true,
With you...
This is love.
