The Floodgates of Love

Oh no ! Not now !
Do not open the Floodgates of Love !

When the face of the loved one
Rises in your heart
When the sounds of the voice
Strums the strings of your soul
When the breeze of the presence
Makes you want to take a breath
Do not open the Floodgates of Love.

When your eyes want to feast
On the approach to you
When you pace all your steps
To the rhythm of that gait
When you dance with every nod
Of that head, to and fro
Do not open the Floodgates of Love.

Every moment that is given
To share with the one
Is Eternity courting
The hands of the clock
When life stands still
And nothing else exists
Do not open the Floodgates of Love.
When the sight of the frame
Is a gift from above
When those eyes meet with yours
You then fly like a kite
When both anguish and bliss
Are set into one mold
Do not open the Floodgates of Love.
