I watch her glide across the sunlit room
Her smile as brilliant as the morning light.
Each elegant step, her sublime perfume
Fills the rapturous air with pure delight.
What wild intoxication to explore
The first faint brush of hands, each sultry kiss.
If we could freeze this frame forevermore
Preserve each precious glimpse of first love's bliss.
Her laughter, like a breeze that gently sways,
The golden spikes of wheat against the skies.
Naked afternoons on warm summer days
Transforms the world: more wondrous to my eyes.
Every summer since, I return alone
to dream. And kiss the letters on her stone.
