You take age away from Me

“You take age away from me”

You take age away from me

You put the year I was born to sleep

You have awakened a new place in me

A heaven made for just you to see

You feed me fruit from a tree unseen

You carved in each tree “Butterfly, you’re my queen.”

My heart delights in the warmth of your light

You’re more precious than anything that’s ever crossed my sight

You take age away from me

You put the year I was born to sleep

Force all things timed away from me

Give me a new reason to breathe

There’s freedom in the way your voice sounds

I feel complete in your arms; that’s where bliss is found

You’d never have to question my thoughts on submission

It is my pleasure; to serve my King is my mission

You’ve taken my age

And put it in its place

Our love is far beyond formalities

They can’t restrain us with their legalities

The bond we’ve developed happened somehow like a mystery

Our souls are identical, at times I feel like you’re the Mister Me

Do you mind if we run away with all of Earth’s time?

Travel to places where we’d be hard to find

You take age away from me.

And you gave me a new reason to breathe.

Awakened a new place in me.

Open my mind’s spaces up to see

I am who I am

What I am

And because I am,

We are too

You’ve taken age away from me, and what’s left?

You.

I am Eryka
