The afterglow of our lovemaking lights your face

Your smile filling the darkness with its satisfied lovelight

The beauty of the Goddess adorning you

Shimmering with her radiance

Before me you lay in sweet repose

Tranquil temptation beckoning

With anticipatory heat

Your beauty outdone by none

Each beckoning curve, captured in a still-life portrait

Shadowed, subtle, seductive

I fall to my knees before you

To be touched by your radiance

To inhale your love

And garner the favor of romance

For you my wistful woman of joy

I bring my only gift

To celebrate your radiance

As etched indelibly

You are in my essence

My gift, a vow


For your radiance is evermore
