You say it first,
take one word and make it talk.
Or better yet, make it sing.
Take a few more, meld them together
and create a song;
a love song only I can hear.
One that I can hold as if it were a satin sheet,
soft against my cheek.
Then take my heart in your hands and smile,
as if it means the world to you.
Give me the breath you expel,
and allow me to keep it as if it were a gift
from your soul unto my own.
Sit with me beneath a tree;
a willow with small leaves
that whisper in the wind.
Hold out your hand and grasp my own.
Then allow me to kiss your fingers
because they speak to me,
while your voice brings me to tears.
Do these things and all my wishes will be there,
within my eyes, as salty drops roll down my face.
I speak, I tell you what I need for you to hear.
I love you…can you see it like a flame,
Can you tell by the way my body shivers…
not from the cold but from the heat between us?
If you can, then kiss me with your tender lips
and allow me to feel your love,
just as you feel mine for you.
