IF YOU WOULD
If you would have my heart, listen to me,
Even when I say the obvious
Or repeat the mundane
Just be open to hear me,
I love it when I have your full attention.
If you would have my heart, talk to me,
About your day, your hopes, your frustrations,
I wont care if the tale is of glorious exploits or inane mishaps
It is the real you that I will study.
I love it when you trust me to know you.
If you would have my heart, sing to me
The lilt of your voice strikes a chord
That makes the woman in me answer
It is not the song or the tune, but the passion in the music
I love it when your melodies are my lullabies.
If you would have my heart, be kind to me
I am fragile, a rare gem with corners sometimes brittle
A lovely descendent of Adams rib,
Bone is easily bruised and broken,
I love it when you cradle me softly.
If you would have my heart, pray for me,
I need to know that you are acquainted
with the “GREAT I AM”,
That you care enough to let HIM know I need protection/direction/ redemption
It is the spiritual that provides eternity
I love knowing that forever is all the time you need.
If you would, you will,
