I will kiss the snow from your lips.
I will bring your face to a blush.
Will you open your subtle eyes,
so I may see them in the light?

I will move the stones from your keep.
I will stack them over the hill.
I will lay them within the copse,
its gray-green shades with theirs interspersed.

I will free you from the dark clay,
uncover your form and brush off the soil.
Dim curling clouds will filter the light
as I comb the luster back to your hair.

I will hold you closer than wait.
I will hold you closer than warmth.
As the dawn begins to build,
I will listen for your first breath.

If at first you don't succeed destroy all the evidence that you tried.

This (literally) brought tears to my eyes.  It's so beautiful.  So beautiful.

The only question is... does it exist?  Do people like this exist?  I know we all hope and dream they do, and we search for them, but do they?
