I love to hear you speak
the resonance of your voice
gives birth to galaxies

I love to hear you speak
your tender syllables
can halt the raging seas

and yet you find the time
to memorize my name

and then craft from the vine
a leaf to hide my shame

I love to hear you talk
the way you seek me out and
invite me for a walk

I love to hear you sing
I truly rest each night
as you’re singing over me

I love to hear you laugh
i’m haunted by my sins but
you can’t remember that

through my past you look at me
and call me friend

you look at my history
and ask to walk together again

I love to be with you
our love affair sums up
the world greatest pursuit

I love analogies
you’re the gardener and
I’m the old fruit tree

should you prune
I’d fall away, but rest assured
that I’ll return again one day

and it’s not because I’d find
my way back to You

But you are the gardener
who constantly pursues
