Will I whisper in your ear?
Feel your calloused hand in mine?
Will we charm the passerby?
Will my eyes draw your outline?
When I look at you
Will I know
What your arms feel like around me,
Your voice an embrace, musical and low?
Like all our lives are for each other
So devoted, so content
One lifetime, plus another,
Is this how our love’ll be spent?
Changing only in color
Your steady eyes gaze at me.
Will I someday look back and tell you,
What I’m sure you already see?
I care for you, my darling friend
And wonder what could be
If we each took one step closer
To dance more intimately.
