One Day if I Could Spend The Night

One day, perhaps if I could spend the night, 
I would stack your hearth with firewood, 
and we could sit together, on your couch. 
You, your feet tucked under you 
and your head against my chest, 
while I held you close to me, 
and breathed that faint and lovely 
fragrance of your hair. 
And we could dine on pizza and red wine, 
in the softly glowing firelight, 
one day, perhaps, if I could spend the night. 

One day, perhaps if I could spend the night, 
there would be nothing hurried, 
no urgency in either life, 
and we could have another glass of wine 
and talk, earnestly, of matters serious, 
if we felt that way inclined. 
Or, we could have that other glass of wine 
and laugh at matters impolite, 
one day, perhaps, if I could spend the night. 

One day, perhaps if I could spend the night, 
when we were ready, we would go to bed 
and kiss and make unhurried love. 
Or, equally unhurried, we would not. 
And we would listen to the wind and rain 
then kiss and make unhurried love again. 
Or, equally unhurried, we would not. 
And we would sleep, egg and spoon together, 
with each of us at peace. 
And everything, 
in both our worlds, 
would be just right, 
one day, 
perhaps, 
if I could spend the night.

    I decided since you have only that one page of poetry, I am better just to start at the bottom and work my way up. I have probably seen almost half your poetry already and the first five you posted here by now I think.

    Well, Red, for a tawdry poetry loving guy, you sure do come up with some awesome sensitive poems about women. this is exactly the kind of poem that I like to see a man write. It shows such caring for the other person!
