I Will Cover You

I’ll carry water to the mountain
and salt for the wounds
for the growing admiration
I am weakened by the swoon

what a brilliant invitation
to lay colors in my view
giving spark to caged desires
that are yearning to break through

cover me with your affection
as if that is your intention

I’m not one for interpretation
you see, I don’t know how to dance
but if words have no boundaries
then love might grace chance

cover me with your affection
and if that is your intention
then I will cover you
I will cover you
