How long I waited for you to get near

You, the one I hold so dear

The desire of mine can only sear

My heart that senses you are near

Our time has come after many a year

For our vows to be heard by every ear

While family and friends celebrate us here

Our critics looks on us and leer

Our wedding ends, it is time to shift gears

But something happens because of fear

Your touch brings out a single tear

Because shame and sorrow reside here

Beneath my skin, my nerves and bones

Ignite a fire where no man roams

My eyes burn bright as can be

Revealing the truth so plain to see

Two types of fire live in me.

The kind you waited long to see

And the kind that’s overtaking me.
