Draw You Near

Ron VanHooser 1956 (Franklin County, MO)



I want to draw you near to me,
closer than ever before.
Deeper than anyone's ever gone,
and yet I still want more.

While flesh and touch are wondrous things,
these are not of which I speak.
I want you closer to my soul,
not simply pressed against my cheek.

I want to know your ins and outs,
your highs and yes, your lows.
I want to know the whole of you,
not just what lies beneath your clothes!

I long to know your heart's desire,
your hopes and all your dreams.
Your sadness, sorrow, and disappointment also,
for character builds upon these things.

I crave your thoughts on the future,
and the knowledge of your past.
For what you see with the eyes fades away,
but memories will surely last.

I want to draw you near to me,
closer than ever before.
Deeper than anyone's gone,
and yet I still want more.
