Anniversary Waltz

by Bill Yarrow

He prayed that she would live forever 
She worshipped his exuberant lips 

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

He hiked the hills of her condition
She biked the path of his delight

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

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