Where can I go
to hide from
this image of love
which haunts me?

For even at night
when I lay down
to sleep, as my eyes
close I see your

When I am not
near you, the sadness
becomes much too

I found myself wanting
to embrace you, to walk,
and talk to you, so my
heart could be inspired
by the power in your
radiant smile when we
spend time together as

For I have become
overwhelmed by your
sweet love with its
enduring strength to
bind a willing slave
to its powers

And I know my life
could never be happy
without you always by
my side each day.

(June 1977)
