Love inspired me

Nothing I could’ve done besides you
Thus welcoming you there stood
Constant still falling like the dew
Flooding life to spur my nature-hood

I didn’t know you then but you’re sure with me
When in doubt suppressed you gave me hand so sure
I tried to ignore but your works crowded me
Accepting defeat I stood to endure

Have I started anything you caused
Indeed I did nothing but you
To resist you journey ceased
Like I must take it all a new

Just the way it is, I submit
When nothing I do stand but your desire
Taking in is the task you entreat
I wish I can do it all entire

This task cannot be too big
Cos you’re at my side always to say
Be strong, endure, very deep dig
It’s given you to shine the rays
I’m inspired, not my own desire

Strength hovers, prized like a pearl
It seems then I will expire
But your presence holds me still
Oh what love can do
Oh my gift, I resolve to obey you
