Have you ever had
A lover
Who made you light,
With laughter,
Like a child,

Who made you full
And strong
Like the king of things,

Who called the moist joy
To your eyes, your mouth,
Your nipples and your knees,
And sent it singing
to your center
With such good news?

Have you ever had a love
You lived to enter
In any loving way
You knew to chose?

Have you ever had a lover
You could leave
To be new
And still know
You had a love?
