As She Wails


Into the deepest night flow
Sweet words of love and happiness!
I can lie very still,
With your arms around me,
Body content, longing satisfied.

You lie sleeping in my arms,
Secure in knowing
That I have loved you too.
I touch your sweet lips,
Remembering their hunger.

Two becoming one
In heart, soul, mind.
Touching, joining,
Holding the world outside,
Needing no more than our love.
