While candlelight caressed her silken skin,
Translucent shadows flickered in her eyes.
Her words were scarcely heard above the din,
Of racing hearts and plaintive longing sighs.
She touched my hand and held my loving gaze,
Within us burned a raging loverís fire.
Those lips that glistened with a moistened glaze,
Were met with an explosion of desire.
This quickening of heart and love and mind,
This evidence of love with life imbued,
That with this kiss our love may be defined,
And with our love this man may be renewed.
This memory of how she made me whole,
Indelibly is etched upon my soul.
