I Have Waited a Lifetime For This Moment
I have waited a lifetime for this moment.
For you to leave the fencepost by the pasture
the power lines by the road
the thermal where you glide
so close I feel the deadly strength of your grip
see the gold flecking in your eyes
know the tension between wild and willing.
It matters not at all that
this is only a dream.
