She is the air that I see
She is the air that surrounds me

One of the things I cannot decide
Is where beneath Heaven
Begins the all encompassing sky
Where she resides
The lack of oxygen sometimes kills
Down here below Heaven
Thoughts of her sometimes fills
The void that chills

She is the air that I need
She is the air that I breathe

There is nothing I would rather feel
Than the cool, calm caress
Of a wind that somehow heals
This pleasure I steal
The desire for this thing is so much
The closeness of her breath
The way only it can touch
It is my only crutch

She is the air that tastes so sweetly
She is the air so completely

This is very nice - and very heartfelt, JML.
