I Need Not... - Poem by Maurice Harris

I need not your loving hand, clapsed into mine-
This would be most pleasing, yet they needn't interwine!
I need not be able to gaze adoringly in your eyes-
Though this would be inspiring indeed, tending to hypnotize!

I need not your thoughtful caress, your loving touch-
This is not necessary, yet I want for it so very much!
I need not your insightful consult, your abiding ear-
Though should any of these be offered-to accept, I'd volunteer!

All I do need is to occupy space I now have in your heart,
This is all I need-until no longer may we be, apart!
I wait, with longanimity, for a time whence over is the wait-
At long last, I make consort, full, with my soul's mate!
Then, and ever, all my wants and needs shall fulfill-
Yet, I abide now patiently, until this is God's will!
