knowing how to love

I don't know anyway to love you
 Than the way I do
 I tried to call the four winds
 they weren't enough
 I've traveled a dusty lane
 And visited a shaman 

All in the search for clarity 

I don't know anyway to show my love
 I grasped at stars
 And fumbled a galaxy
 I watched a night bloom
 As the last ray of day died
 In supplication I knelt
 
Reverently I show my love
 The only way I know how

    I read this verse and was left with a nagging hunger, knowing I have penned many verses with love themes. I found one .... "Let Me Teach You Love", you might like. It's not as eloquent, but I think you will like it.... Hugs to ya..... Jake
