For me

She took her skin off for me

And in the naked light

Wore only the colors of her soul,

A color, of weeping and living sound

Of forgiven sinners, grateful for forgiveness

Of weight lifted off shoulders

In the color of his love,

† Of peace

And acceptance, whether understood or not

But love, freely and blindly given


I was young, educated and in college

Rambling on about society

And social injustices

Prejudices and inequalities

Too blind to see anotherís inner beauty

And too busy for me to see and fall in love

With human beings, thinking they are all the same

She took her skin off for me,

And sacrificed her flesh,

to show the inner strength

And beauty that had long forgotten that lies within

She took her skin off for me

So that I may take the time to silence mine own voice

And listen, for something not being said

And to watch, the beauty in others,

She took her skin off for me

So that I may have the chance to stop

And fall in love with her,

As she had with me

For she already had the power to see through and into me

A true child from someplace else

Someplace I never knew off,

Where love

can fall from trees and blossom into beings

She took her skin off for me
