Maiden Voyage

Rating: 5.0
This is our maiden voyage
A journey to the stars
You, I and the vast ocean blue
Forecast: smooth sailing as far as the eye can see

As we set off, let me impart the one rule on this Ship of Fools:
No talk of the past
What came last
My-our-only concern should be the here and now

Here, lie by my side
Rest your head on my lap
Look up, notice how the golden rays anoint us
They darken our skin and light up our hearts

Expect sweet nothings, which are really somethings
Tender kisses, passionate ones and anything else I can think of
When I overindulge, please forgive me
I’ll forgive you, too

When we get the urge, our basket of goodies awaits us
A picnic on the seas, how sweet it is
Cheeses, wine, fruits...even those fancy chocolates you like so much
The devil is in the details I learned a long time ago


Perhaps, if we feel like it, we'll drift off to Never Never Land
With no worries weighing us down, it will be the sweetest of slumber
Maybe we'll dream, maybe we won't
Reality is the new dream, anyway

Make no mistake, The Road to Here was not paved with gold
It was, is and forever will be long and arduous
We had to fight, claw, even crawl to grab the brass ring
And even though it was somewhere by the moon, we snatched it
With both hands

But it was all worth it
Your shackles are off, and you're on the high seas with me
Not only in spirit, but in the flesh
The spirit, as we both know, can only carry you so long
You must actualize the union, and, finally, we have

This is our maiden voyage, my love
The first, but not the last
Though it's getting late and we should turn back
Let's stay out here just a little bit longer
