and if I want you more
than you want me,
then what my sweet?
shall my wanting be enough
to see us through
or will you eventually wander to
where your wanting is more
where it is enough to match your need?

and if  your loving me frightens me to flight
will you spread your wings
and fly with me, just so
I will never be alone?
or shall you wait patiently
for my wings to tire
and for me to return to your arms?

and if we found in each other
only what we looked to find,
only what we longed for,
and didn't heed what was really there
and the roaring fire, to not more than an ember dies,
shall you remain my friend
and still find comfort in my hugs
smile with me when I smile
and offer me your shoulder when I cry?
shall there still be
a place of solace for you in me?

Sometimes we find in someone everything we're looking for, but forget to look at what else is there.  Excellent expression.
