Infect Me

Infect me with your beautiful smile
Let me feel the glow of your joy

Permeate me with your heady perfume
Let me experience what heaven smells like

Capture me with your beguiling gestures
Let me again become the fool that fell for you

Conquer me with your winning ways
Let me be yours always, every day

Occupy me with your sweet sweet love
Let my thoughts always be with you

Secure me with your selfless care
Let me bask in my glorious happiness

Pervade me with your undying affection
Let me relish my great good fortune

Cradle me with your soft caresses
Let me never wake up from this dream

Fill me with gratitude by being in my life
Let me make this day last a little longer

No matter when our lives on this planet may end
I will forever cherish these moments
Of togetherness

The Word

Which is the one word
We use a hundred times a day
But rarely if ever think about

Which is the one word
We’ve ruined with overuse
It’s one we can’t live without

Which is the one word
That has lost its meaning
While mankind thinks it's progressed

Which is the one word
That can lift us from the morass
Into which we’ve all regressed

Which is the one word
That has become shorthand
For unbridled prurience and lust

Which is the one word
That has lost its true beauty
It also means respect and trust

Which is the one word
That has the power to end
These endless cycles of strife

Which is the one word
That has the power to bring
A fresh new meaning to life

Which is the one word
We need to learn again
The real, true meaning of

Which is the one word
We utter but seldom mean
The word, ma chérie, is love
