540 Center [27 May 2003]

In the silence of my soul,
do I see you standing there.
The center of my tranquility,
a peace forever calming and loyal.
In our bargain, you will shelter me,
protecting from all darkness.
In return, I save you
from the past that haunts you.
Your embrace chases all fears,
brings me confidence and joy.
My arms, my voice, my body, my lips,
shall bring you the light of day.
The garden of love seemingly forbidden
to one such as you.
I will be your key
and you will be my savior
from a life of solitude.
