breaking of bonds

to express intense pleasure and calming peace
to speak of the breaking of bonds
so long and carefully kept on
my heart
to whisper of awe and surprise at your caring
to share how delicately my belief
in you is balanced on my fear
of loving
to sing my joy to your passionate
soul that withstands my anger, my fear,
needs, wants, laughter and accepts my love
