I wished for sunflowers to lift their heads.
Feeling the warmth of your breath
they gently sway in tune with my love.
I wished for passion and earthy sweat
feeling every inch of your sweet skin
its totality, outside and in.
I wished for starlight to sprinkle dust
that sparkles like fireflies in the night
That I might see your eyes light up.
I wished for soft warm welcoming sand
to feel it bathe my eager feet
while wavelets lap at your tenderness.

I wished for nectar to quench my thirst

and found the memory of your first kiss

that took me to paradise and beyond.

But above all these things I desire

it is more time that I need the most -

to spend over and over again with you.

Wow! And I missed this one when it first went up. You do have a genius Allen, for expressing the tenderness in a loving relationship, non more evident than here; and for myself the ending was most poignant. Bravo my friend!

Beautiful wishes, Allen. This poem is a muse of words and so much else.

Beautiful description of love. I feel a sense of loss, or fear of loss, too. So very nostalgic. Loved it.
