The Moment I Said, “Yes”


Saw you there

Or did you see me first

Didn’t need to ask your name

What’s the difference when it’s all the same?

 

When I made my way to you

Barely knew just what to say

This may be more than I can do

But I wouldn’t have it any other way

 

But the moment I said, “Yes”

I felt you give yourself to me

Deepest thoughts I want to confess

Moving in a soft, warm ocean is where I want to be

 

Take my lips

Hide them from the rest of the world

Swallow my hips

My toes and fingers are now curled

 

Move me with you

Take me places you’ve never been

Relieve what could be blue

Again and again making me say, “Yes” over and over

With my new friend

 

All this because I said, “Yes”

And you kept me strong but weak

Like a baptism now at rest

Holy Ghost in my spine I can’t speak

 

The moment I said, “Yes”

I really was there

Feeling you against my chest

What better way to show you care

 

“Yes,” I said

But not for just a moment

It’s all me from my feet to my head

Like a heat-seeking missile,

Oh, you know what I meant
