Lay with me

Let me paint

You with words

Let me strum

Your hair like

A harp let

Me tap your

Tummy like a

Tympani let my

Fingers dip in

Loves water colors

And draw circles

Across your brow

Down the cliffs

Of your cheekbones

And pool in

The hollows of

Your throat lay

With me and

Let me look

Into your eyes

And see stars

So far away

Yet close enough

To touch stay

Lay with me

Delay with me

Let this night

Last into the

Day with me


Love indeed is

Magical it can

Be seen felt

Or even tasted

It can be

Heard and said

Though itself is

Invisible what miracle

Such a thing

Is to be

Everywhere and

Nowhere at the

Exact same time

It’s always something

And never nothing

It’s always given

Often received frequently

Forgiven never forgotten

It’s sometimes laughing

Too often crying

You my dearest

Are that same

Love to me
