    or perfect,

    I do not want to control anything i give my heart to Gd

    I want to know what happens when I lay my heart down.

    he allows me to pick it up again saying wear this crown.


    There are tears that have been shed when something says they are not yours

    that they don't belong to you

    what is loving for?


    your Love is soft and being kept for you as the clouds.

    Your love is like a rainbow.

    colorful and I am wowed.

    and your love is good for everyone

    your love is only This . . .




    it expands in your love.
