Forever 

I have planted you

In every place I’ve gone 

In hopes you blossom 

Be it in another’s earth 

To have held you close 

A memory for lifetimes to come 

Fill up every void 

Defining love and loss 

Birth and death 

Blurring lines in its disobedience 

Lawless in action 

Wanton spirit to explain 

How we did hold the sun and moon 

When our embrace created breath 

I still inhale you 

Envious the rose became 

Interchangeable 

All the same 

Buried you in the air I breathe 

This is how I’ve set you apart 

Forever 

Truly 

Do not think of me keenly 

I do promise thee

That I will fail you 

And leave tears where Love reigned 

This admiration you feel

Is merely illusion 

Only the Heavenly Father 

Deserves this praise

I am just a man 

Try as might 

To forget this reality

I am fallen

But loved by his creator 

I can only ask forgiveness of thee

For my foolish ways 

Words and actions 

I pray you know 

This love in my heart 

That grows with his every word 

Because it is there 

That you will know me

Truly
