I can feel the rhythm of your heart
beating in tune with mine,
and the sound of the song
erupting beneath my chest
creates a symphony of perfect peace
that I can smile to
throughout every hour of the day.
I can taste the heat of the sun
on the tip of my tongue,
and I know that every ray of light
pouring down from the sky
was birthed by your precious eyes.
I can see for miles into the distance,
and these bright visions of the future
involve you cradled in my arms,
your lips locked with mine,
your fragrance filing every room,
your love washing over my soul,
and your voice leading me toward bliss.
I want to swim with you, sweet swan,
through the vast ocean of life,
synchronized in every step
as the dance we both have dreamed of
is made manifest upon the earth.
I want to worship you forever, divine goddess,
with respect and adoration,
with the warmth of my admiration,
with a promise to comfort you always,
and with a vow that will never be broken.
