NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION
I still had the key she once gave me
did I still have the key to her heart?
fearing I had been away much too long
I wondered if she’d still welcome me
I decided to use that key at two am
I wanted to start the new year with her
she had been out late with close friends
in crowded streets celebrating all night
she’d already be in bed, nude, buzzed
maybe asleep from too much champagne
the key still worked, locks unchanged
tiptoed in, dropping clothes in the hall
half moon through windows, dimly lit
the inner sanctum of her blue bedroom
there she was, a goddess wrapped up
in the gold coverlet, almost covered
one foot with painted toes peeked out
and her left breast appeared porcelain
in the caress of silver winter moonbeams
I stood in the doorway as she dreamed
softly she moaned as in a heated embrace
of some long lost lover who had returned
her body writhing between satin sheets
in her salacious dream induced ecstasy
then I heard her softly whisper his name
the one who came to her in dark fantasies
once more she spoke his name, this time
loudly, like a woman lost in passion throes
I stood transfixed for it was my name
that passed between her cherry ripe lips
I slipped between the sheets behind her
covered her neck with desire’s hot kisses
whispered into her ear, “mi amor siempre”
her supple body pressed back against mine
as my hands cupped her warm full breasts
“is that you Juan? oh if only it were you”
she sighed as she turned and nuzzled
against my bare chest, inhaling deeply
“your scent, Juan, it’s the same, the feel
of your bronze skin, your arms around me”
“I’m here, here to welcome another year
lost in the scent and taste of your love
here to wipe your tears, end the loneliness
we’ve endured like two shipwrecked sailors
who cannot find the way to familiar shore
I’ve come for you, to claim the treasure
of a love that distance cannot destroy
to fan the flames of desire that winter
cannot dissipate nor the frigid waters
of separation extinguish in cold nights"
and as she welcomed me into her garden
and surrendered her fragrant flower
to the cultivation of my lover’s tongue
I whispered, “this year we will no longer
suffer the agony of want and loneliness
often I’ll use your door key at two am
I’ll watch you as you dream of our love
then I’ll wake you with tender caresses
together we’ll sail passion’s turbulent sea
and anchor at dawn in the harbor of joy
song meet you in heaven
