To you I belong

a poem by Crystal Rose

Life is just a breath, a gasp
Too transient to stay within our grasp
Never too short, never too long
Give me life – to you I belong

Love is just a look, a touch
A lover’s heart filled with much
Longings and emotions too strong
Give me love – to you I belong

Joy is in the heart, the mind
When to a loved one you bind
Your feelings, your thoughts all the day long
Give me joy – to you I belong

You are my joy, my love, my life
In my troubled mind’s world full of strife
I ask for nothing, but I long
For all you can give – ‘cos to you I belong.
