Looking out across the miles,
Feeling closer to you than seems possible;
Closing my eyes you are here with me.
I can feel your breath upon my shoulder,
Your hands moving softly at my waist.
As I lean back into you,
A sigh escapes my lips
And I am home.
Your arms embrace me and your mouth
Whispers softly, creating images that play
Over the lush garden of my mind
And I am lost.
Watching the sunset's last gleaming,
I move my hands up to mimic your gentle
Yet imaginary embrace.
"Soon", I whisper as my vision
Is filled with thoughts of us,
Lying tangled in each other's arms.
And I am at peace.
