Love Has Come

Love has come and made herself at home
mussed my hair and filled my eyes with light

Love has come and taken over the place
making fun of all the impostors before her

Love laughs at my silly attempts to be sad
knows that her presence banishes all trace of madness

Love whispers to me in the dark
sweet nothings of devotion
tenderly singing her songs into my heart

Love knows those dark passageways
still greedy to have me back
but knows, too, that I can’t help but dance
to the melody of her flute

Love walks with me in my dreams
and wakes me at 3am
to make sure I don’t forget
that everything has changed now
