392 My Purpose [18 March 2001]

in my life
before you came
I had no purpose
no single reason
to breathe in and out
there was no one
who met my desire
or fanned the flames
of the passion
that awaits freedom
inside of me
there was no man
whose intellect stimulated me
as much as his body did
until there was you
you came into my life
like a runaway stallion
racing against the winds
your arms picked me up
where I had fallen
your smile lifted my spirits
when I was down
you are my purpose
the very reason for living each day
why I get up in the morning
and sleep at night
because of you
I know peace
I know life
and it is you
