lay it down

i love you
three simple words
three simple words
with a not so simple
meaning

is love a flutter?
is love a feeling?
is love sex?
is love passing?

or are these things
the shadows of
the intangible
real, true, everlasting
love

to me
love is a choice
love is death
the death of
me

the death of
my ego and pride
my wants and desires
my weaknesses and strengths
my importance and control
in light of you, my love

this is love
this is the life
that we as men
are called to lead
this is our love

this is the heart of a warrior
this is the heart of a king
this is the heart of a priest
this is the heart of a prophet
this is the heart of God
