Because I Already Know I Love You

You say let’s not move in haste,
But, I already know I love you.
You say time can be at a slow pace,
But, I already know I love you.
You say you are excited and afraid,
But, I already know I love you.
You say you don’t want to receive a debt that has to be paid,
But, I already know I love you.

So why should we wait?
Because I don’t know that I love me.
I say I have never really loved,
Because I don’t know that I love me.
I say I taught myself to feel inadequate,
Because I don’t know that I love me.
I say I don’t know how to love a woman,
Because I don’t know I love me.

Oh Dear God, teach me to love me,
Because I already know I love her.
Take the charge out of past losses,
Because I already know I love her.
Allow forgiveness, compassion and gratitude to fill my minutes,
Because I already know I love her.

And, one more thing, Oh Dear God,
Stand with me as I love her.
