Now

How I'd like we were together right now

I would place my head upon your breast and curl up in your warmth

feel the beating of your heart in time with every breath we shared

put my arms around you and hold you in their comfort and protection

place my left hand on your right cheek and my mouth on yours

taste there the honey sweetness and giving of your lips

live every moment in that embrace

our bodies our souls our minds our hearts touching moving melding into one into that completeness of love and loving

I would kiss your toes your elbows armpits navel ears eyes nose ribs and there where your rose blooms like the most beautiful creation

run my fingers down your back feeling every corrugation of your spine and around to that place where heaven awaits

hold you open for me to be with you

This is where I would like to be right now
