Is there a way to reach beyond space and time
and touch those places we cannot feel...
to face the void imposed by questions yet unanswered
with enduring patience waxing thin and frail?
Is this a time for us...
lovers fraught with lust, needy of joyous union,
aching for the grace of bodies one
enduring the relentless sentence life now imposes?
When will the slap of reality soften
allowing our dreams daring to take flight
dashing those who dare to unconsciously interfere
as sincerity of spirit rises above blind selfishness?
Can this love endure perpetual test
while so deserving the serenity just beyond fingertips
supported still in undeniable strength,
while longing for the blessing of a merged simplicity?
Where do the answers lie...
will we allow those vicious threats
to invade that space where only we exist
and undermine the integrity of a love so rare?
We will face our fate head on
together casting the lure of tenacity
looking beyond the trivial impasse
into what is consistently real and solid.
We will have faith in the destiny of desire,
side by side more powerful than apart
believing profoundly in one another
recognizing the composure and longing
found in lovers' eyes.
So come to bed with me now my one true love,
Come fill me with the desire that only you can give
And we will find strength in each other for tomorrow
and for as long as we both shall live.
Come rest upon my breast and sleep.
Dare to dream all the dreams we will share
and those unanswered questions will be answered,
the void will no longer be there.
