i could get lost

i could get lost

in the sound of your voice

lost in the song that you sing

lost in the dance of my heart

once again starting to dream…


i could grow younger

in the sound of your beckoning

younger in arms that embrace

younger in seasons of loving

in summers that never do fade


i could climb over obstacles

in the sound of your encouragement

climb heights making visions so clear

climb together in awakening splendor

if only, my love, you stay near….




Although I am not “in love” with any woman…nor is this addressed to any one woman, i wrote this after listening to Java Girl read Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18 (http://www.landofblogging.wordpress.com). Somehow, it has inspired me to…this.
