Forever Together

If we could be together
Would you hold me close
So I can hear your breath?


If we could be together,
Would you take my hand
And wipe away my tears?


If we could be together,
Would you keep me filled
With overflowing love?


If we cannot be together. Ever.
Will you slip into my heart
So I can feel you there,

Have I told you yet?

All I need is your gentleness. Caress my warm soft breasts and watch the nipples harden. But do not touch. Not yet. Hold your lips to my forehead. Kiss me. Make sure your breath is sweet. Trail your fingers up and down my thighs. Then cup me. Do not mistake my cry for hunger. I have stuff to sort out. Wetness comes without my knowledge. Dip your fingers there and wonder. Once more my body betrays me.  I am not wild for sex. That is your fantasy. For now I want your touch. Your understanding. Your love. Have I told you yet?

I found a copy of The Tao of Pooh, a few months back, that celebrates the great philosophic wisdom that comes from a Bear “with a very small brain.”  The inscription inside the front cover caught my attention.

Dear Kiekske,

Just like Pooh, you just are.

Your presence, you being you,

is the ultimate joy for me.

Never change who you are.

Please don’t disappear from my life –

you make it special and you are a part of me.

I love you … more than words can say.

I wonder what has happened to this romantic couple in the 19 years that have since passed. Perhaps there is a story there begging to be written.
