A Place For You


If I could take you to one place, Elizabeth,
to one very special place,
I would take you to my heart.

You would sweep through it, like fresh rain.
Swirling across my landscape.
Drenching on my soul.
Blossoming hope, in my wounded places.

And, in return, I would fashion a world there, for you.
A space where you could sit, quietly.
A place where you could laugh, uncontrollably.
A moment when you could love, unreservedly.

In my heart, you would rest.
Wrapped in my spirit.
Warmed by my heat.
Riding at the very center of me.

I have learned much of love.
And much that I have learned is hard.
But I have not let it harden my heart.
There is a place there, for you.

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
