Loving just for this moment of just this day
For now, passion sleeps
And I lie dreaming
of gentle moments with you,
Showing the truer colours
Of my affection.
I mean you not as a replacement
for some other,
And I mean you not as a source
of unilateral pleasure.
I bathe in your presence
As in Bernadette's Spring,
And sip you
As from nepenthe pools.
