This valentine's I wish that you were with me

This Valentine's I wish that you were with me.

It's lonelier than most days I'm alone,

Even though we'll manage on the phone

To touch with words the face we cannot see.

You away are far more dear to me

Than anyone who might remain at home.

My love is in the places that you roam,

Being with you where I cannot be.

We do not choose the objects of our passion,

But passively await the holy fire

That immolates our past and lights our fate,

Twisting through the alleys of desire.

So I am yours, and will contented wait,

Allowing love my life and will to fashion.
