It was a long time, coming.
When I learned, how to receive your love.
When I learned, how to feel.
How to feel your caring, for me.
Caring that is a reflection, of my own ability to care.
Attention that is a reflection, of my own desire to notice.
When I let you shower me with kindness,
that is how;
how I received your love.
Because, I had cared about me.
Because, I had cared about feeling, love.
Because, I had cared enough, to practice.
And, I learned to receive my love for me.
Oh, I know, how to love,
how to shower the receiver.
Fully expressing the depth of my heart’s passion,
means that I’m receiving, too.
Like a transmitter, looking for a radio.
Like a wave, searching for the shore.
I get to be the beneficiary,
of your caring; of your attention.
I get to soak that in.
Like relaxing into a wet hot bath;
and letting go;
and sinking in, and going, ‘ah’.
I get to give you the pleasure
of an outlet for your love.
I get to give you the satisfaction
of knowing your passion is felt,
by someone other than you.
I get to shine in the energy
that is between us, dancing.
That is how, I learned to receive;
how I learned to receive, your love.
