Longing

Waiting for my chance
for a moment
a touch
and then you’re gone
again
and I wait
again
for my chance.

My life is as full
as busy
as hectic
as yours
but do you know
how I live
live and breathe
for those brief moments?

Do you know
how I treasure each one
and leaf through each
memory
as through a
well-loved book?

Will there truly
be a day
when waiting will
at last
be done?

When days
and nights
will be filled
with love
only
love with
touch and
breath and
pleasure unlimited
for just
us
two?
