Wherever you are,
Come to me!
I have heard your voice
In the serenade of the songbird
In the swaying branches of the tallest trees
In the humming buzz of distant stars.
I have felt your soft and delicate touch
In the swaying blades of grass
In the smooth contours of every Oak and Maple
In the glowing embers’ warm embrace.
I have tasted your sweetness
In the fresh-picked berries and ripened fruit
In the the darkness of the cacao
In the refreshing simplicity of water on parsed lips.
I have found your scent
In the living, breathing soil just after the rain
In the open fields full of fragrant flowering flora
In the spring air, life rejoicing in renewal.
I have seen your visage
In the waves crashing undeterred against the rocky shores
In the sun shining through overcast skies onto peaceful scenes below
In the ageless peaks and valleys carved into the very Earth itself.
I have sensed your presence
In the hottest summer days and the coldest winter nights
In the minutes that pass like hours and the days that go by much too fast
In the busy city streets and the lonely country lanes.
I only wish
I could know you now
As you are
Unguarded and undiluted.
To hear you whisper wispy words in my welcoming ear
To feel you run your finger along the weather worn lines in my hand
To place my lips so close to yours, hovering, your breath hot and heavy, your flavor pouring out and through the thin space between
To breathe deep your heavenly fragrance, sweet and savory one in the same
To behold, with eyes unfettered, your form in all its natural splendor
To be with you now, wherever you are, however you will have me…
