A parched man in
A barren desert
I emerged today
Within an oasis of you

Just to pass within
The sphere of
Your presence
Allowed me to drink

And I am quenched
By your Smile
Your Eyes
All of you

Satiated far beyond
My hope – for I have
Walked So very long –
Seeing no one, no thing

Such a long time to you…
