Love Returned

He can not own me
I was not made to be
bought or sold
He can not control me
I\’m not a puppet on his strings
He can not direct me
my path is not the one he chose
He can no longer hurt me
my strength surpasses his
You can love me
and I will love you in return
You can gently guide me
and I will follow
You can comfort me when I am needy
and I will be gracious
I have the flame of hope in my heart
and I offer you my gifts
if I may ask of you
a hand to hold on to
a shoulder to cry on
loving arms around me
an ear that will listen
and I will give you
all that I have and
all that I am
and a love so deep
you will never want
for anything again
