Bathe Me With Your Love - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

Come and bathe me with your love
Shower me with your kisses
And rub me with the balm of your touch.

Shampoo my hair with the oil
of your generous kindness
Pour into my aching body
the blessings of God's grace.

Hold me closely to hear
your whispers in the running water
Hold me tightly to your bosom
as if this is our last romance.

Come and bathe me with your love
Caress me with your gentle arms
And let me feel the beating of your heart.

Hold me closely to ward off
the eternity of absence
and let us celebrate these unending
yet mortal moments in the bath of our love.

    Hold me closely to ward off
    the eternity of absence
    dream croons in room of resonance
    as earth cries to sip warmth of sun,
    heart craves to carve curve of love
    assonance is crux of inebriation, most passionate write, love provoking,10++++, thanks for sharing
