My love is all my own,
I dream about its rainbow hues,
I wind my way often
down the lanes of its memory,
I smile over its expressions,
revive its passions,
ruminate on its reflections,
ramblings and rants of long ago,
I keep at bay the fears,
wipe away the tears,
revel at the joys
buried in the deepest fathoms
of my heaving heart,
The tears, fears,
thoughts, dreams and all
will be mine on call
to relive as is my wont,
It’s not in me to give them away,
It’s not in you to take them away,
It’s not in them to just go away,
My love’s been about me, always,
I’m its master, I’m its slave,
It’s in me to give you the reins
or take them away.
