To My Husband

To My Husband

Let me dive my face into your chest as someone thirsty plunges into a stream.
In that infinite expanse I have sensed the potent scents of old spice and cigarettes.
Let me breathe in your enthralling odor with sweetness of your kiss.
Let me feel your touch and reminisce the memories of us growing old together.

When I met you, I dreamt of an ideal life.
Your presence inspired my visions of vast oceans, clouds carrying us to enchanting lands where skies are always blue, and spring is forever.

In your eyes I glimpsed our lush life together with refreshing flowers and intoxicating wine.
We delighted in our children, in their innocence and intelligence.
In loving them, and in caressing you how I forget our weariness and worries!

Only if you could know how much I love you.
How empty I feel in your absence.
And how my soul soars in your presence.

Though no longer young, let’s kiss and caress.
Let me rest my head on your graying chest to let you know that all my dreams have come true.
