You have made the day
Very envious, because
Your beauty has no rival

And my body reaches a
Breathless state of
Sheer euphoria…

As my lips yearn to speak,
But they are held prisoner
By their binding passions

I can only cry within
For I fear the moment
Will soon escape me

Leaving me a helpless
Pawn in a maze of
Unwanted loneliness

Where I may never be
Allowed to see the
Beauty of your face

As I must know your
Name to frame it tightly
To the walls of my heart

So that I may dream of
You in many moments
That are mine alone

While saying an earnest
Prayer, begging I may
See you again so soon.

April 1977, written soon after the
first meeting with my wife to be.
One of the poems I love the most.
