Her skin soothed me
It was softer than the lightest dripping
How it rolled over my dry skin,
Nourishing, invigorating my spirit
Oh what warm affection
How it reminded this cold heart to feel.
Something in her smile begs me to respond in kind.
It’s an energy that mine responds to
One that encourages more exploration
With each passing day
Holding on to this rarest of treasures whose value
Can’t be known or traded for flimsily folded green paper
No, this treasure was beyond tangible, further than physical
What intrigue, in those upturned lips
What tastes, sublime, shared with a single kiss
Nothing known before compares to this
A smile, when shared with her, such simple bliss.
And still I seek her waters.
Though at times, I feel so far.
But distance is just an obstacle
To the four wheels of a car.
And when I’m lost at night
She could be my northern star
Each day’s procession
Sees her raise the bar.
That I’m left feeling warm
She’s sunlight’s beam
To my swelling storm.
And when time is right,
And I come again to find her form
That she’ll know these words and smiles
And she will rest assured.
