Desires



Contemplation of my desires, tainted with confusion


Cast upon me like a beam of the ominous moon.


The tears stream down my face once more,


Bestowing upon me the relief I desperately call for.


I long to have you with me once more,


To place my head upon your chest


And hear the words you whisper in my ear,


Not with words of mouth my love,


But with the sound of your beating heart.



Oh how I long for the words of eternity


To slip with ease from your lips.


I yearn to hear those words so sweet,


Although hesitation plagues my soul.


Save for the occasions when my eyes witness


The glory of your smile that casts a light upon my fears,


Compelling me to forget all that I have known


Of sorrow and my unwanted apprehension


Toward all that entails a life with you forever.



Now as I lie upon my bed


I know not why my tears have fallen.


A lifetime with you my love, I realize now,


Is not a consideration to be feared or hesitated,


But to be a joyous reflection held within my heart,


A promise that can and will come true,


And a glorious gift sent from above.


I have found you now to hold forever


And for that I savor every moment with you.
