I stood before you
my soul naked.
And you embraced all my faults and sorrows
There have been times in my life
when I thought I would love no one
not even myself.
But then I found you standing
in the Courtyard of my Dreams
full of wild flowers in bloom,
your shirt rustling in the wind,
a halo of free flying petals around you
and I want nothing more than to hold you
make love to you,
melt with you until we are gone.
And I’ll take your hand
lead you to the cliffs
that overlook the endless sea
ever tranquil until it reaches the rocks
churning like our bodies
as we meet ecstasy.
And I feel that we could leap from these cliffs
sail to the edge of the world
and play on the shore of the universe
leaving our footprints on the stars.
Forgotten by man and time
but never saddened by their absence
never noticing their retreat.
