Traveling With You Through Space


Oh the memory....when we first kissed
every fiber
in my body stood up
longing for your approval.

Had they believed
you would only return
with Haley's Comet,
they would have sworn their loyalty,
combing the skies nightly
for signs of you.

Your kisses pulled me into your life
like the long reach of a galaxy's arm,
at first a mere tug,
a flirt's promise.

Thirty years later my nerves--
as you stroke my torso--
are like the trembling, small quakes
on the lunar surface,

a life shared, the two of us
forever reshaping
each other.
