    Standing tall and naked before Venetian blinds
    Stripes of sunlight and shadow stretch across my bare chest
    A chest filled with love
    But missing the touch of loving fingers
    A sigh of acceptance
    The touch forever lingers

    A school bus stops traffic
    The smell of coffee in the air
    Morning is confirmed by the sweet smell of dew
    Looking through the great bay window
    I am loving you

    My darting eyes search for you
    In places only our hearts can know
    Wanting to thank you one more time
    For loving me as you do
    For giving me sight
    For helping me grow

    This morning will soon become afternoon
    The sun will move toward you
    As evening arrives much too soon
    And when the moon gives me my cue
    I’ll kiss the stars goodnight
    I’ll still be loving you

    BE

    Oh, BE, what this one says and is.

    "Standing tall and naked before venetion blinds" - this is quite a sensuous story in itself.

    "Stripes of sunlight and shadow stretch across my bare chest"- well you painted such a vivid picture with your words here.

    "A chest filled with love"- well what could anyone say about that, but sweet, wonderful, beautiful emotion.

    And all the rest, well, THIS piece is a painting, a story, a love letter, an awe inspiring poem. Just wonderful, BE.
