There was a time
by A. Gagliardi
There was a time when artist’s touch
Inspired the leaves to scent of musk.
When poet’s rhyme brought lover’s home
- inspired the couple’s love-sought poem.
There was a time when your embrace
Gave faint my heart to beat again;
When one soft look – a keen reply
- brought love’s long ardor with one sigh.
There was a time when love’s desire
lay fast upon my lips.
When tender touch anticipated -
yearned for your embrace
But now, my love, ‘tis something new
as I long linger - gaze at you.
With artist’s eye and poet’s heart;
I still adore you, as the start.
