A cup of cheer

She invited me round for a cup of cheer

36B to be precise. Yes, cheeky, but it

Made her smile and with an impromptu

Giggle she indicated her desire to forgive


Sipping whisky, cognac, a warm fire and

A warm woman, just about all there is

This side of heaven. Speaking of heaven

Only heaven could have conceived of

Love, of dwelling in the heart of another

Of being their first thought upon waking

And their last thought before sleep. A

Treasure amongst treasures, intimate

Secrets, thus far held safe and come to

Life in the warmth of a passionate kiss


Dream in my arms tonight my love

Dream in my arms until dawn

Dream with your lips close to mine my love

Dream in my arms safe and warm


What the heart desires and what the

Voice will tell are two entirely different

Things. Not all appetites for love are the

Same, but underneath love is love and

Soon there is no humiliation in the heart

Knowing and heart reaching out to fulfil

A lovers fondest wish


Satisfied, gratified love, breathe in the

Breath of heaven, trace the contours that

So please the eye, touch where others may

Not. You are now one and may drink from

The same cup, a cup of cheer if ever there

Was one


Yes, I know, misfortune may befall even

The most perfect relationship, but we're

Not going there today. Instead, let us accept

Things as written and leave heartache

For another time
