I Am Affection



Oldfield, Brenda M

I Am Affection


I am affection!
A living paradise! Embracing love!
Your love! Our love! All love!


I am a delicate sense! Of enduring touch!
Caressing! Parents, friends, and lovers
A silent act, of praise, oh so sublime!
Human ties cherished, like childrenís playtime!


I feel not, I hear not, timeís duration
For Iím lasting! Awake everywhere
Infusing, honey and milk, so sincere
Of bonding, and sweet belonging


I am a voice! A maestro! In harmony!
Sharing a vision, of splendid unity
Singing feelings, of mutual goodwill
Connecting! Each to the other


I am a rich ocean! Of true, intense love!
For you! For me! For all! A peace-dove!
A Jasmine, exhaling, sweet smiles
Exciting! So many, cheery delights


A dynamic treasure! Of mighty tenderness!
Ah what comfort! Oh, what gentleness!
Homely, resting, glowing with warmth
Never repelling, attracting, one and all


I am kin! Of kindness! And compassion!
Fortifying! Happiness, and inspiration
An innocent child, of generosity
Deceived only, by primitive fears


A victim, oh so sadly, of morbid greed
Pulled apart, by falsity, and ugly creed
My heart abandoned, oh how it can be?
For Iím this soft blanket, made of hugs


A living light, which cannot rust
For I touch! I give! And I trust!
A majestic mother, of adoration!
A precious path, to a selfless life!


I am affection!
A living paradise! Embracing love!
Your love! Our love! All love!
