A Kiss

What I would give for a kiss
A hug by a warm log fire
Someone’s hand in mine
To feel loved by a woman
Who cares for me

What I would give for summer
Hand in hand on a beach
Eyes staring into mine
The warmth of her silken skin
Loved and happy

This loneliness is hard to bear
Moment to moment I despair
My heart is an empty shell
And life a living hell

What would I give for conversation
Over a bottle of red wine
Candle light flickering a while
Casting light into the darkness
That I now call life.
