Treasure Island

Gwenevere Cornwell

What I Wouldn't Give


What I wouldn't give
To dance by the light of the moon
To revel in the soft glow of dawn
And to watch sunset with you

What I wouldn't give
To watch your pupils dilate with longing
Your eyes narrow with love
Your smile full of laughter

What I wouldn't give
For just one day with you
Without another's judgement
With nobody else watching

What I wouldn't give
For a night alone with you
To please you, and hold you
With love in my heart

What I wouldn't give
To kindle your desire
To be needed as desperately as
I need for you

What I wouldn't give
To be held in your arms
To feel your soft lips on mine
To feel your caress on my cheek

What I wouldn't give
For your need to be mirrored by my own
For your love to shine through your eyes
And for you to be mine unconditionally

What I wouldn't give…

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
