This Stairway (poem)

Updated on December 21, 2013

These tiers to my hopes and delight

This stairway which leads to you

-

Together the stars it would seem

Now heighten this path to my dream

This stairway which leads to you

-

The moments which we spent apart

My footsteps now redeem my heart

With oceans of kisses in view

This stairway which leads to you

-

Excited of evening I planned

The world is all ours to command

Devoted to touch of your hand

There’s nothing which I wouldn’t do

This stairway which leads to you

-

With visions of you in my sight

Rich fantasies in me ignite

The promise of pleasure incite

A spell from the moon waits our flight

The climb which makes all this come true

This stairway which leads to you

-

They never seemed this long before

I never once felt such a chore

Not tears but sweat which I pour

On footsteps which lead to your door

What happened to the love of lore

In time they would show what is true

This stairway which leads to you
