A Good Night
Last night, my love, we must have done quite well-
There’s evidence about us- I can tell…
With articles of clothing strewn about-
And things we covered up now sticking out.
I seem to need some water- be right back…
She knew just what to wear, the satin black-
That I can’t let her stay in very long,
Besides, I think resistance would be wrong.
These giddy smiles, the hair across your skin,
I said I’d be right back-now let me in.
Yes hold that pose, and let me hold it too,
There’s just no question what we want to do.
You lie back down, surrender to my care-
And wonder why I don’t come up for air,
But there are more important things than breath,
And Heaven didn’t wait for this man’s death.
In time I rise above you like the sky
And wipe the slightest tear drop from your eye-
Descending to embrace you, soft and still-
Just like last night, until we’ve had our fill.
