Just to feel his touch
The soft warmth of his skin
To stare deep in his eyes
And see from him within

To hear his gentle words
And know about his love
A longing I’ve accrued
Though being just enough

Someday I’ll know for sure
His nature as his wise
The kindness of his heart
The tension in his ties

Despite them I shall love
I shall carry, honour, give
If he’s to be the one
With all eternity I live

Just as I am for now
A good uncertain place
Still dreams of him,
A smile, a hope

Someday to see a face
