Were I to Declare

Were I to declare undying love for you

            Would you eagerly respond in kind?

If I should say, I need your love,

            Will you readily promise it mine?

Did angel kiss caress your heart;

Attack to soften hardened spirit?

What once was wall impenetrable barrier,

            For love, you threw down the gauntlet.

 To challenge emotions, your very soul to conquer,

            You chose love first, exposing defective armor.

You threw open gates, unsealed myriad doors,

            Your essence unleashed, passion now emancipator.

Abide now this day, your freedom attained,

            False spirits fell before you, caustic chains now broken.

From this time forth, let love be your manna,

            Your affections now gift, never scant token.

Dedicated to Deke
