I Am, You Are

I know that what I am is all I need
My ears can hear your voice, my mouth can kiss
They tried to kill me; they did not succeed
I’ve felt your love; I’ve felt too much of bliss
They gave me pain, but I choose not to feel
the wasted ends of nerves; I choose to touch
my skin to yours because I know it’s real
and nothing that you give me is too much
I know that what you are is all I need
Your kiss upon my lips is more than life
and everything that follows that one deed
erases everything that causes strife
I live because you love me, this I know
My life is yours to guide; I want to go.
