Grasp at your heart's content
The person you want to hold
Moments you wish were longer
Express what remains untold

Because when you finally feel
Despite what did transpire
The others were only fodder
For fire that won't expire

The flame burns deep within
For base emotion never felt
Once ignited, not extinguished
Old defenses just start to melt

Crowds, numbers, just statistics
Despite countless years alone
For in a revelry of intimacy
The sanctity you built was home

Yes, I will return there often
And clasp it to heart and soul
What you unveiled in me, I clutch
Full knowing you made me whole
