All That There Is

All that there is and what to give
Among this crazy world in which I live

Mastered the trip to being alone
Let the heart go cold as a stone

There I can and will be safe alas
Save for the fire of all that has passed

Walking along that last crooked mile
Stumbling around to the tune of a smile

So peaceful where the wind doesn't blow
Feeling deep inside that beautiful glow

All of this I have been bestowed
Traversing along further down that road

After all that I've seen and all that I am
Something inside yearns for the touch of a man

Been skipping around alone and so free
Yet chained by desire and being so lonely

For the One that will only love me
Not just for the ride and what they can see

Pray for the One who will love me like that
That's the One I will love back

It might be simple or it might be tough
And assuredly it would never be enough

To give all there is to give
Among this crazy world in which I live
