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
