My Burning Love
Within the confines of my heart
by Jo Lynn Ehnes
I'll hide this flame that burns for you,
until the passion we impart
becomes a fire of love that's true.
A friendship bond we can't deny
developed from a longing need.
The want for rapture's lullaby
has planted fervor's growing seed.
Your gentle spirit heals my soul
and mends the rip from darker days.
Your brilliant light, which gained control,
has cut through my life's ebon haze.
So patiently I will await
as destiny completes its scheme,
and guides me by the hands of fate
into my lover's waking dream.
