So We Do

Do I deserve love
Will you throw water on  the ember of my emotions
I deserve to be loved
When I'm tired will you stroke my brow
Patiently the dying , flickering flame waits
Momentum gathers as you add fuel to me
I roll like a child taught under the smoke
Can't touch me and I reach to gather
I pull you to me and hold you 
I drink you to my parched lips
I deserve to be loved and we move
We move silently to the new song
I  gently place my log into your fire
We watch the crackling fire 
Together we roll under the smoke
Like children playing a game 
Only understood by us
We speak our language
We deserve to be loved 
So we do
