One minute to love

(A minute poem)

The time to love is when you’re here
With me, my dear.
So please do this –
Give me a kiss.

And as we kiss your clothing slips
“My lady strips”
By you I’m lead
Upstairs to bed.

What happens next no-one need know
Its time to go.
Turn off the light
And say goodnight!
