Longing

I long to hold you in my arms and dance beneath the moon
To spin you round the garden to a soft romantic tune
I want to cook your dinner then to sit and eat with you
To see you taste the pleasures that are known to far too few
To pour for you a glass of wine and watch it kiss your lips
And toast you in its magic while I kiss your finger tips
To drown within your warm embrace and love you tenderly
And keep you in that special place reserved for you and me
I yearn to hear you breathing as you sleep beside my head
To lie awake and gaze at you relaxing in my bed
Though I have never met you in your land across the sea
It is only when I’m with you that my spirit can be free
