Shall we then lie, our bodies side by side,
Closing our eyes midst this passionate touch,
Saying the words ’til our hearts dare decide
If forever really matters so much?
Then do we confirm an absence of trust,
Blind to a union that yearns to transcend.
Rather bury love in layers of must,
Anointing passions that only pretend.
Tho’ past love’s shadows should whisper dismay
And fear of risk keeps us safely apart,
Yet shall I offer this simple bouquet:
‘Tis thee unadorned who captured my heart.
And should assurance require more than this,
So shall I give it in such gentle kiss.
