Knee to Knee

 
This lovely poem was written by Bonnie Spanogle in 1995
 
I’ve made a commitment to you,
You’ve made a commitment to me.
Sometimes it’s not easy.
Marital roles have been changed
Companionship is the way
Will you come with me?
‘Cause when you look into my eyes and hold my hand
then I realize that we can love one another.
 
We can trust one another.
When we’re talking heart to heart
Knee to knee
That’s the way we know it can be.
When we’re talking heart to heart, hand in hand and knee to knee.
 
Conflicting views taking place
Anger shows its face
But we can listen
Admitting weakness and fear
Our strengths can begin here
If we will listen.
 
We can trust one another.
When we’re talking heart to heart
Knee to knee
That’s the way we know it can be.
When we’re talking heart to heart, hand in hand and knee to knee.
 
I can slowly feel us making it safe
to talk about our hurts and chafe
And we can affirm one another.
We can love one another
When we’re talking.
 
We can trust one another.
When we’re talking heart to heart
Knee to knee
That’s the way we know it can be.
When we’re talking heart to heart, hand in hand and knee to knee.
