I hope you feel at home amongst my words, and I hope you enjoy the important spaces in between them just as much…

All I Ask

Posted on 30 November 2020 by Iain under Thinking Out Loud

All I Ask

To hear your voice, to see your face
To know your touch, your warm embrace,
To feel your loving heartbeat race,

That’s all I ask.

To hold your hand, to sense you’re near,
To watch you banish all my fear,
To let you wipe away each tear,

That’s all I ask.

To acknowledge that our love is true,
To be sure that when each day is through
That I’ll be safely home with you,

That’s all I ask.
