Unmet Amour

Unmet Amour

I reached for the heavens, but caught a star instead

how glad I was to find that heaven is where this star lays its head

I reached for the streets of paradise but landed at your gate

and with the way I feel when with you, it seems paradise can wait

For With you less is more and more is less

This obvious truth I need not confess

Much less is my pain and my sorrow

When the more of you I get to know

And more is my joy and gladness

When less time I spend in your absence


I longed for an angel but found wings instead

For here with you gravity is all but buried and dead

I sought for a queen but landed on a throne

Your love has made royalty and total dominion my very own

Your presence places all fear beneath my feet

Your grace and charm adorn me with kingship complete

And here in this place of awe and willing surrender

I marvel, I quake in astonishment and wonder

That even though I know you not as yet

I still love you and cherish you completely my dearest unmet.
