I want to feel your heart beat next to mine,
my breast against yours held in a breath
when time stops and all I can hear is the
metered rhythm of two beats now one.
I want to feel your hand holding mine,
slender fingers entwined within gentle brave
ones easy enough to find when only stars
light the heavens but game to venture far.
I want to walk with you next to me
our feet in step to music rising from our
souls, leading us in dance to the song of
life and laughter, in gratitude of being.
I want you.
