This heart cannot forsake you

As I embrace each memory

Floating through my mind

Warm as golden sunlight

Then cool as silver stars

Your touch as velvet fingers

Caresses my fevered brow

When deeply I inhale

Your enduring fragrance

Of sandalwood patchouli

Chanting sacred songs

To the god of all creation

As I disrobe to saunter

In the gardens of desire
