Lily my love…

together – taking on the sweet challenges
of ethical pursuits
though far from idealists
we still take into consideration our roots

my life I lease to you my lover
pretty miss from Addis Ababa
your two lips like tulips
succulent nectar… colourful kisses

your eye is always on the prize
but you’re the one I can’t resist
you make me realise that sacrifice need not exclude pleasure
quite simply you show me bliss… bring me balance

and when I’m too clever by half
my flaws you fix
such a brave beauty
with a touch as soft as butterfly breath

and what I create – you inspire
a match made in heaven
a light… a passionate desire
so by you I want to do right, and keep ablaze our flame… our fire!
