To Investigate The Depths Of This Love

My lips are not off limits,
To your kisses.
Or to hear words you rather dismiss.
Perhaps.
You may just wish them to kiss.
Perhaps.

My arms are here to hold you.
Come and feel them,
Around you.
If you wish...
To nap.
Perhaps.
If that should happen.

My point of view is not set in stone.
Nor do I claim to own misunderstandings.
Those lessons I've been taught.
I do not seek to be alone.

Time spent with you is all I want to do.
If I didn't,
Would I be near you sitting?
Would we be here together listening?
Trying to comprehend...
A door that has been opened.
To share and respect those emotions,
Beginning between us.
And to investigate the depths of this love.

My arms are here to hold you.
Come and feel them,
Around you.
If you wish...
To nap.
Perhaps.
If that should happen.
And if it does...
My heart enfolds you,
In safe and protective embrace.
