How I Long How I long for the day When I can share with you the deepest secrets of my heart When I can trust you Without hesitation or reservation How I long for the day When our relationship makes you take a chance And you reveal to me, who you really are Even willing to reveal your feelings How I long for the day When I am at ease in your presence And when my love freely flows Like a mountain stream, created by snow melting in the heat of the sun. How I long for the day When your rhythms are in sync with mine Like the sounds of drums beating Played by ancestors on star filled nights How I long for the day When our love becomes a work of art That moves us out of real time Onto the shore of desire, bringing to life the fantasies in our minds. And as we ebb and flow, ebb and flow I long for the day when we are together
