Lights Go On -- Part XXXIX -- YOU

Perhaps it is a metaphor for life. It is your place and forever it shall be, for it is you, only you and you are enough.

You

There is a place here

in my heart

where only you reside

no one before you

or after you

may come here

for it is your place

and your place only.

Sometimes I come here

and it is full of the most delicious

deep and understanding love.

Sometimes I find it empty

and I am alone.

Perhaps it is a metaphor for life.

It is your place

and forever it shall be,

for it is you,

only you

and you are enough.
