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…

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
