I Long To Be Yours

I long to be yours

Not for a day

Or an evening filled with haze.

Not like summer

That relents and gives way to fall.

But more like a breeze

That slips into you

To bare skin

Where you can feel me

Surround you

With love.


I long to be yours

Like the sand and the water

Lovingly stroking one another

Day after


Like the sun rises in the East

Morning after morning

With no question

Of whether it will do it again



I long to be yours

Like gravity keeps us pinned

To the Earth.

Or like the lake we enjoy

Year after year

Stays in the same familiar place

Looking very nearly the same

Each time we visit.


I long to be yours

For a lifetime

Or more

If I get the chance.


i have never
