By Charles Robert Lindholm

I wake up
each morning
at my oasis
and soak
in the beauty
of your smile
in the soft
light of dawn

I drink in
the sweet kisses
from your lips
that quench
the thirsting
in my soul
and somehow
they fill my heart
with your love

Enough to last
me through
another day
in the desert
of reality

Enough to leave
me longing
and needing
and wanting

My heart
knows the way back
the need
of the North Star

An instinctual
and internal
sense of home
that returns me
back to the love
we share

And to you
My Oasis
