A Moment in Heaven

There is no love
beyond what you offer
I have looked into your eyes
seen the fire there
so bright
so fierce
it could consume one
as it did me
I have felt your touch
discovering a peace
a solace I had never known
there is nothing for me
I only wish
to stay by your side
forever and always
no mansions
no jewels or gold
would ever be a fair trade
you know all
in my most secret heart
those things
my mind condemns
but my being desires
take my hand
lead me from this place
calm my fear
the restless turmoil
tearing at my soul
help me to see the truth
as the shadows close in
all around me
see me
among the crowds
and bring me home
if only for a moment
to be with you
