a.m. Want 3

a.m. Want 3

You came around to catch me just in time
to stop me from escaping from myself
into a night where moonlight never shows
its promise in renewal of a love
unseen, untouched, unknown until you knew
before it happened:
                         I was made for you.

Today, make me decide to be my best.
Today, make me speak gently, with respect.
Today, make me use words that hold their own.
Today, make me know simple ecstasies.
Today, make me show patience, make me wait.
Today, make me complete the things I start.
Today, make me give others what you give.

I haven't done enough to show my thanks
for smiles I've smiled because of you, for light
I've seen and warmth I've felt and breaths
composed from word immersed in pure poetry,
for windows opened, doors unlocked, for hope
that when I sleep it doesn't disappear.
I haven't followed through enough, to mean
these things I think and say enough to change
my undeserving dirt into your pearl.

I want, my love, I want to hold your trust.
I need, my love, I need to keep you near.
I dream, my love, I dream of being yours.
Another day begins, 
                         my love, with you.

My lover, can I think a single thought
without you there for me to know its stroke
against the urgent pauses in their turn
uncomfortably mastering attempts
to echo my desire?  My dreams are yours,
the sounds I kiss are folded in your voice,
with faces painted full of love and light
and children's laughter virtuous as dawn
aroused to your embrace.
                                       You stir me up!

Can anything I think do anything
you'd think worth wanting near as much as I
expect to be influenced by your hand
possessing in its touch my eager wish
to be what you will do, where you will go,
how you will make it all smile?
                                       You fill me up!

My heart's companion when I'm completely down,
my stomach's ache for hunger's happy end,
my eyes' white vision bathed in simple trance,
my throat's escape into that next request,
my breasts' contentment in a stolen chance,
my lips' first waking breath -
                                       You lift me up!

a.m. Want

a.m. Want

Because you are experienced and skilled,
because you care, because you give your time,
because you see the way our days can be,
because I hear you in the thoughts I breathe,
because your touch brings color to my skin,
because you love me,
                             I'll be yours today.

Each step today will take me nearer you
and those that don't won't ever go so far
that you can't hold me just by reaching out.
Each sound I make will echo your own voice
and those that don't won't be mute to your ear
and always hold a whisper of your song.
Each smile will be for you.  Each thing I do
will know its best in you.
                                    I'll give you me.

Beloved lover, always be the first
in mind as I wake up! Be what I see
as soon as my head ventures from its dream
of life with you to living out my hopes
in service to each impulse that is you.
Your name will be the first word I will say
and kissing you the first thing 
                                           I will do.
