Lovers Aren't Always Best of Friends
Love that lasts is love that's more than passion:A wedding of true friendship and desire.Some might fear a certain loss of fire,But pleasure is ignited by compassion.
You're the one in whom I most confide,The inner ear I talk to through the day,The flesh I need when I must have my way,The world where I am home when I'm inside.
And even more, I find my pleasure, too,From seeing the delight you take in me,The comfort, quiet joy, and ecstasyThat it is my gift to give to you.
