If I could have you back for one day…
I’d hold you and never let go.
I’d bask in your love
I’d dance in your arms
And tell you that I love you so.
I’ll ask you to tell me stories
Just to hear your deep voice again
It’s been so awfully quiet
Without you here…
I’ll lie in bed cuddling you close
My head on your broad, muscled chest,
Listening to your rhythmic heartbeat
Relishing your warmth as we rest.
I’ll whisper how much I love you,
As I trace every line on your face
And sense how perfect the world is
Now that you’re back in your place.
I’ll nuzzle your neck and kiss you
And entwine my legs with yours
I’ll soak you in
I’ll feel your love
And be at peace once more.
You’ll tell me that you’ll never leave me
Even though we’ll both know that’s not true.
Just give me one day to pretend
That I’ll spend my whole life with you.
