Touch of Love

 All day we’ve loved

Holding each other

Arms not tiring

Of your touch,


A touch warm, gentle

Yet bold, I should not be withheld

On that day,

This day,


To steal away the hours

And rest with you

In an open land

Where there’s no time


I was withdrawn in my song

Swallowed up by winter’s

Hand until your fiery heart

Pulled me to warmth.


This was my dream,

Wishing long to be here

Knowing it was you

All along.
