It takes so little,

A soft touch, a kind word


A passionate kiss or a loving smile

To erase a world of hurt and sorrow.


The pleasures we give each other

Have no need for words,


For to love in silence

Is to love completely.


What we share is a soul deep connection

Which cannot be diminished by time, distance or willful neglect.


My gift to him of unconditional love

Is really a gift of freedom to us both


To be who we really are and to

Experience this love together for its own sake.


There have been stops and starts

But only in physical presence because in love there is no time.


So once again the physical will rejoin the heart in time

And the heat and passion of our love will resume, stronger for the absence,


As if it had never stopped.
