A Tower of Love

I'm high above the earth
On a tower of love,
Above everything of worth
Below me above.

Higher than even the clouds,
And the mountains,
Atop the people in crowds,
And the rivers and fountains.

Your love has lifted me high;
My hopes, my life -
On a tower in the sky
And ending my strife.

I tower over everything,
Except the ONE above!
I'm in Heaven and awing
On a tower of love.

April 2, 1968

  1. If I remember correctly, I was going through denial at this time - not wanting to accept that my girl friend had dropped me while I was away at Boot Camp.
