An Offering

Written by: Cecilia Macfarlane

 I offer you a glance
and our eyes instantly lock.
An unexpected shiver runs through me
and time stands still on the clock.
I offer you my hand
and you take mine warmly into yours.
No words have to be spoken
yet we have opened so many doors.
I offer you a dance
and our bodies meld together.
We are both in awe and astonished,
both wanting this to last forever.
I offer you a kiss
which makes us quiver in delight.
The passion and the pleasure
intensifies through the night.
I offer you my heart
and I trust that you won't break.
To fall in glorious love
is a risk we yearn to take.
