Unexpected

With tenderness I’ll lead her to my heart
And hold her passion in my warm embrace
The song of love that only she can start
When first I hold her in our secret place

I’ll woo her with my voice inside her head
As she is found inside the words I write
Such beauty as I take with me to bed
To fill my dreams of loving through the night

For love is found where it was never sought
And blossoms in the most unlikely soil
It grows where lesser feelings will fall short
And forms a balm against the hardest toil

The love I found when I was just at play
Is now a love that warms my every day
