Love Has Come

Love has come and made herself at home

mussed my hair and filled my eyes with light

Love has come and taken over the place

making fun of all the impostors before her

Love laughs at my silly attempts to be sad

knows that her presence banishes all trace of madness

Love whispers to me in the dark

sweet nothings of devotion

tenderly singing her songs into my heart

Love knows those dark passageways

still greedy to have me back

but knows, too, that I can’t help but dance

to the melody of her flute

Love walks with me in my dreams

and wakes me at 3am

to make sure I don’t forget

that everything has changed now
