I’m Convinced

by Janis Gaines

I’m convinced
If you would pitch your body
Over me like a tent
Then I would be safe
From the devils and the darkness
And foul weather
That won’t relent
Then my soul would be spent
In loving kindness and compassion
And affection
For you, my perfect gent
And I would sing for joy
For a life, for a love
For a home
That’s heaven-sent
