    If the congregation
    of our lips
    no longer
    hums the gospel
    or sings saintly tunes.
    If the vigorous rhythm
    of our kiss
    loses a beat.

    will you still love me?

    If the assemblage
    of our bodies
    no longer
    sanctifies your spirit
    or dances beneath your skin.
    If I touch you tonight
    and you aren't greeted
    by a bright opening
    of heavens doors

    will you still love me
    tomorrow?

    All I can hear is the Marvelettes singing "Will you still love me tomorrow...".

    Am, this is so sweet. Posing a valid question poetically. I like what you're doing these days.

    Serenity...

    To sip again from the glass of your words... roll them on my tongue and savor the bouquet... intimate and delicious....
