You Hold The Key

You Hold The Key

Impetuous by nature
Burning craving to know more
This fitful hunger for learning
Keeps me knocking at your door

From the first look in your eyes
You showed me the me you saw
Transforming rogue to a genteel
Even making my cold heart thaw

I had never seen this picture
I was offended at first glance
GOD! I was only flirting
No intention to get in your pants

But that's the image presented
By using your womanly ways
'I mean no harm in these words
I believe in these words today

I fall back on that as remembrance
As the first truth I found in you
The one that keeps me hungry for more
You're the reason I do what I do

To this day there have never been many
I know more about me than ever before
Through this reflection of me in your eyes
You hold the key to unlock the door

I have a greater understanding
Of what it means to be me
I am innately yielding to truth
My eyes are now open to see

Now in every breath I take
My world is colored anew
I am conscious of all my choices
Knowing they will always include you

What is it that I want
Is this the question you ask of me?
The door always there to open
And now, only you hold the key

Still I search for the disclosures
To the questions I have inside
Will I ever know the answers
For in faith I must abide

No longer blind but still searching
There are questions that still remain
Like, is there a mutual desire
To create a temple for us to reign

Jim 1978
