This time, I cannot give up my body
To a relationship built shoddy
I cannot have what I desire
No matter how much I feel the fire

This time, it's public dates and communication
Time to wait for a lover's celebration
"No dear man", I refuse to give in
I cannot go back to the way it's been

This time, your naked skin won't be on mine
That kind of love will wait for time
To heal the hurt we've laid on each other
Until we're strong enough to see that there's no other

This time, without the thrills of making love
I let you be and do not shove
The bonding I want with you down your throat
Until you're ready to give me all your vote

This time, will be no easy task
As in your sun I want to bask
But I have to stop before I burn
Without the sex perhaps we'll learn

That, this time, sex is made for married folk
It's serious business not a joke
Something that is holy, to share
Not something that is just there

This time, if we lay down together
It's to stay that way as all the weather
God places in the sky above
Outlasts all storms because our love

This time, is about being friends
With affection first as the pain ends
It's not about us getting laid
The price for that cannot be paid

This time, you'll have to want to marry
This woman for the physical love I carry
As in my heart my bodies all for you
This time, it will have to wait for that "I do".
