Distant Lover

I reach across the waters that lie between us
wrapping my arms around you
kissing you tenderly on the mouth.

I encircle you in the sanctuary of my arms,
you bury your face in my hair
leaning into me with all trust.

I hold you, my Love,
all else fades as we be..
Two hearts beating as one.

    “all else fades as we be… / Two hearts beating as one.” Perfect ending to this romantic piece.

    A beautiful poem of love and trust, and giving oneself completely…
    And when the ocean forms the landscape, it makes everything look doubly beautiful..

    The last stanza is just beautiful. And a little sad.
