To Be Loved, by Alexis Rodriguez

Print Friendly, PDF & Email
More than to have riches
is my deepest desire.
To love as I am loved
or excel my lovers fire.
To transmute
my previous living
behind bars, and razor wire.
To transform past desert places
to an oasis, is my desire.

To turn adversity, loss,
and life's defeats
into riches
where now I feel
my life's complete.
With love, joy, peace replete
and finally in my corner
all can take a seat.

A woman
who will understand her man,
together walk freely
at home or foreign land.
Stability, comfort
or moved to take a stand.
Does this dream
seem to grand?

Money most men have,
but a woman will be praised
if she's lead by Holy hand.
Then I'll love what I do,
it won't be work to me
if I'm given one to love
and she feels equally.

Words won't need to be spoken
ours is transparency,
mutual admiration
where one's weak
the other strong will be.
Oh Lord, I pray for help
for fulfillment 'cause I'm alone.

For family, for friends
the true treasures only found at home.
I've asked for bread
I don't expect a stone
but surely instead
I'll accept You to be my own.
