All my life
I have waited all my life:
To see your delicate smile
To feel your warm, embracive touch
To hear your beautiful, soothing voice
To smell your soft, flowing hair
To taste the bitter-sweet wine on your lips
To witness your affectionate love
To declare your radiant beauty
To bask in your ever-awing presence
To talk about your friendly compassion
And most of all...
To be the one you love and cherish
for all my life on earth
For I have more love for you
than all stars in the great beyond.
