319 Your Music [26 June 2000]

In the silence of the night,
you stood there facing me,
your eyes glittering like emerald sapphires,
like the ocean so deep that I was drowning.
You took my hand and placed it over your heart,
upon your smooth skin and against your strong muscles.
I took your hand,
placing it over mine,
above my breast against my weakness,
my strength.
The moment you spoke my name,
releasing it from your lips in a cascade of notes,
I heard only symphonies playing
with the sound of your breathing as the solo
the beating of your heart becoming the bass line.
From then on I only wanted to be with you.
The quiet, proud, strong man whose blue-black hair
carelessly draped across his forehead.
God, I want to stay here in your arms
to watch you sleep,
to hear love’s melody for as long as I live.
To close my eyes each night knowing your close.
To awake each morn to hear you sigh.
I open my eyes unaware I had closed them.
You are still here beside me.
Could it be?
Will you stay?
You pulled me close to your body,
my head resting against your shoulder,
your pulse in your throat echoing in my ear.
I knew then that never again
would I be alone.
