To Be Light, To Be Whole


     1
To be light
To be whole
To be held
When you're old
To be gone
Far from here
To be loved
To be dear
To be precious
To be gracious
To be lovers
Under the covers
To be wanted

     2
To be live
To belong
To be high
To be strong
To be one
Among all
To be lost
To be small
To be precious
Not pretentious
To touch you
When you touch me
To be wanted
     3    
To be there
Full aware
To take in
With great care
To be warm
To be firm
To hear you laugh
As you squirm
To be precious
To be luscious
To be proud
Within a crowd
To be wanted

     4    
To take aim
To hold still
To breath in
Ready to kill
To just drift
Through the void
To confront
What you avoid
To be precious
To be special
To be god
Or else a devil
To be wanted
