I long for you

"Let her kiss me with the kisses of her mouth--
for your love is more delightful than wine."
paraphrased from  Song of Solomon 1:2

My love for you is endless
My love, my lover
In the quiet of the darkness
Of this night, so very long
My dreams are not enough
In my bed you are my temptress
But for reasons that do not matter
Tonight I am alone
And the night is just a song
How I long for you
I desire your presence
In more than just my bed
I miss you so deeply
Your lips, your kisses
Heal me from the day
You pursue me with love
That is relentless
And I love for
All you are
Divided for now
But only by flesh
We will be
Together as one
I long for you
Forever I will
From my first breath
To my final
My love remains still
