Sonnet XIX: Show Me Once More

31 Dec


Show me that once ardent reach of your hand,
the way you would beckon for my approach,
when your aching need was at my command,
and your lush submission, beyond reproach;
show me that smile, ’twas at once brave and shy,
the way your eyes would alight when I called,
when your smile was a gift of brighter sky,
and if e’er dimmed, then would sky be appalled;
show me that soft glow in your liquid eyes,
the reflection of your youthful aware,
when e’en your deepest gaze could break with sighs,
but only yours, as abandon would dare;
show me how you once cried in reverie,
that I may bear fond tears in memory.
