Anniversary Waltz

by Bill Yarrow

She prayed that he would live forever
He worshipped her exuberant lips 

She loved the size of his mustache 
He rode the highway of her thighs

She climbed the hill of his condition
He biked the path of her delight 

She broke his dreams against her fears
He cut his eyeteeth on her tongue 

She planted the vine of his desire 
He watered the garden of her heart
