Intimacy,  Poetry

A Lover’s Poem


I give you my life.
 I lay myself down.
 Even this bed of roses,
 Can’t handle the sound.

I don your beautiful head with my very own crown.

O lover, love on.
Keep on loving beyond the breaking of dawn.

Your soul is a river my soul knows well.
Our love is a secret I love to tell.

I’m swept by your current.
I drown in your deep.
I come to full consciousness, even while we sleep.

You’re wide open spaces,
I love to explore.
I’m tightly hidden spaces,
Your mystery, all the more.
