TO LEAD IN LOVE AND BE LED

Life is a universe
Of highs and lows,
Bliss and fear,
Serenity and stress.

Together we walk through that life
Hand in hand,
Side by side.

Let neither of us be afraid
To need the other to lead,
In times where ones heart is heavy laden,
In times when we do not know
Which way to go.

Needing one you love
To take the lead,
To break down the impediments,
Is not weakness.
Yielding and allowing one you love
To take the lead
Is an act of love,
The ultimate act of trust.

Do not be afraid to need,
And I will not be afraid to need,
So that together we will create
A sublime and everlasting love.
