• Warm bath water
    Reflecting candle flame                        
    Cool, still

    My body still chilled
    I relax into the wetness
    Surrounding me.

    So many feelings
    Longing to be expressed.
    So many emotions
    Longing to be exposed.

    I lift myself slowly out
    Of the tub and
    Climb into bed.

    Will I receive you tonight
    Just a glimpse
    Will your arms come and carry me
    To a far distant land
