HEAVEN

So easily you have ensnared
my affections. Daily
my heart recites your name.
Daily, my heart
remembers your face
and longs to hear your voice.

Your lips are sweet,
ripe with dulcet words
meant only for my listening.

And how selfish I am with
those saccharine phrases;
How gluttonous I am to indulge!

Like a drink from an oasis
after years of crawling through a desert
Is your kiss.
Only your mouth can slake
my relentless thirst.

If love is music,
You are my favorite song;
You are the lyric on my lips,
and for no one else will I sing.

My love,
Reserve a place for me in your heart.
Hide me away in the safety of
your arms, that I may forever rest
in heaven.
