To a Girl

At last I feel my love so close to me
Thy breath, a soft caress upon my cheek
And in that touch I yield my soul to thee
Yet my spirit is neither frail nor weak
It is thy love that gives my heart its strength
The strength that seeks to sate thy own desire
And for thy smile will stretch to any length
To see thy joy reflect in eyes of fire
For love has come to guide us like a star
It shimmers bright, so bright between us two
Each forgotten dream that brought us where we are
Two lovers who now dance the arcane blue
As here and now we come as one to meet
Two souls once halved in love unite, complete
