Keeping it simple

Red moon, John Lyons (oil on wood)

Keeping it simple

Simple I said
whenever you love me
it goes straight to the heart

I need all things
less than love

I want all things
less than love

material physical love
your finger brushing my lips
gently

your eyes
looking lovingly
into mine

all other purposes
are less than love

there is
no greater reason
no greater sense
than love

John Lyons
