Love may be a seed that will be realized and bloom at last in the heart of whom it desires. This is a love that must be voiced and acted upon everyday,in every way and as often as possible, otherwise that love and all it could be, remains a thought,too soon forgotten.

The pleasure of you
The want of your embrace
Calls me yet again
It is your smile,
Your voice,your touch
That moment when you are near
This is the need
That I have for you

And if it were revealed
And counted
It might be more
Than could be said
More than the sum
Of sands upon sands
Even on islands and lands
Small and unknown
Or those vast and discovered

See and witness them
Boldly set there upon
Each shore
Drowning quite
Warned of a truth
Heard in my own faint whisper
And echoed amid that chorus of
Legions and many
If each could speak
They too would say
It is still not enough
To say the whole
Of my love for you

If the thought
Were measured
If the caresse were weighed
And the memory of you taught
Only I would know
That value

For I am here
Now and until that time
That I will be no more
To live for the pleasure of you

My heart has spoken this need
And found it's purpose in you
So how could it be otherwise
That this is not denied
Except I have no voice
I have no strength
Or all life become a game
For I confess
I am not my own

Not since once,having known
Your face against my face
Or the moment of you in my arms
Each time you say my name
It is a kiss upon my soul
You are the essence of dreams
I dreamed
And prayers I prayed
The thing I could not know

For I am here
Now and until that time
That I will be no more
To live for the pleasure of you
