I long for awesome sunsets
Someone to share them with,
Romantic walks along the beach
A passionate, tender kiss.
I long for summer nights
To lay beneath the moon,
Make love under twinklin' stars
Or in the park at noon.
I long for summer dances
In a field filled high with wheat,
Or the coldness of a stream
Where we could hang our feet.
Romantic dinners by candlelight
A loving word from you,
A warm and steamy bath
With bubbles filled for two.

The only suggestion I might have is to add an apostrophe onto "twinklin!"

This is beautiful hon   I ditto SEA!  

Yes, I am here, but I am dead, not alive,
my body goes on, my spirit has died,
and I though alive, feel dead inside.

Bonnie you slipped in there on me earlier. Thank you  

Serenity that's sweet, and I thank you!

Janet it's probably the only one I've written of it's kind. I would love to write more these  

Thank you dear Ellie! I have what I need though  

Balladeer that's the ultimate compliment coming from you. I loved writing this one, had visions in my head, and it flowed out. Someday maybe I'll get the unction to do another. I'd have to say I had the most fun with this one, out everything I've written
