Tasting You

Although you’re never at my fingertips
Too far away to feel your body’s heat
Too distant to be underneath my feet
I close my eyes and taste you on my lips

The water in between us slowly slips
Away beyond the borders of a dream
And as the scene decays to mists and steam
I close my eyes and taste you on my lips

But life goes on and I must live on drips
The tender sips of love that come my way
Until the world decrees that you can stay
I close my eyes and taste you on my lips

Although you’re never at my fingertips
I close my eyes and taste you on my lips
