The Presence of Love (Version 1)

I didn’t realize until the other day
That for two people to be together
in each and every way
Can forsake so easily physical, sexual contact
With any other person to every extent
I had thought that that in itself was enough
Until recently, there are others that are as tough
Though sex in itself is most pleasing
To know that your partner is not receiving
From anyone else, in any fashion
To know this, is good enough reason
I came to a realization that that wasn’t enough
I don’t want any man to have even a touch
Even less than a touch, I don’t want them to see
What my baby has to offer me
