Look me in my eyes,
And tell me what you see.
You can open up my heart but you’ll find…it’s empty
So Love I ask you,
Do not come to me.
See, you’ve already done enough
so please leave me be.
Opening up my heart
And jumping in and out
You think it’s okay…but I have my doubts.
People believe it’s a temporary thing.
It’s what I wait for yet what I see.
I have a hidden bride inside that’s waiting to be.
My groom is not to be found
yet my heart to him I want to be bound.
So how can I truly know what love means?
This love will be genuine
Deep, pure, and true.
This loves what I long for until the moment I say, “I do”.
How I hope and I wait til’ we two come a pair
How I’ve thought of my husband time here and time there
but how I’ve not realized it’s Your Love I’ve not declared.
How my heart is not prepared for this open Love affair,
For You are the true Lover of my heart and Lover of my soul
I let my interior unfold and believe its my husband who will make me whole.
How I have mistaken his love for the perfect love that YOU give.
But how grateful I am to know that You’re around and You live!
Inside me You are, You live yes You do,
For You are the only one I will give my mind, heart, body, soul and life to.
Yet still, these desires unwind in my mind,
Twisted and tangled, everywhere they fall.
But You pick them up and You reassure me that You can fulfill them all.
How I all these years have looked past Your Love
Not knowing the true gift, given to me, from above.
How my heart is relieved
and a deep sigh is let free
Because I know my true Love is actually found
So look me in my eyes,
and now tell me what you see,
Because all this time, I now realize, that Love was looking straight at me.
