Your longing mouth,
a kiss embrace
the hungry sensual pull.

My tired heart
had lost all hope
of your warming, persistent love.

With outstretched arms
and lonely soul
my life seemed but a loss.

A fresh dimension,
cast by your love,
turned to gold the tarnished dross.

A look anew
with dreaming gaze,
beheld thy longing eyes.

With velvet night,
your moonlight face
was framed with tender love.
