Only For Tonight - Poem by bethlehem maresa

warm against my skin
your sweet caress
is a gift

i never thought another
person's touch could
feel so good

it's the first time
i've ever felt so
special, so nurtured

your strong, gentle hands
soothing, healing
my aching back

i think i love you
if only for tonight
you help me to forget
the work of life
