To My Love

Peel away all cloth of pretense

Lie naked as the sun

Bask in the glow of your pure light

All work for your pleasure already done

Relinquish your name

Abandon facade

Embrace your true precious self

Stand as our oak stands

Knowing no purpose

Yet your fruit will feed

They will rest in your arms

And I will lie at your feet

Protected and warm.
